THE UNIVERSITY OF AKRON
In 2012, Mr. H. Peter Burg, an Akron community leader was memorialized
through the establishment of a specialty garden at the University. In 2017, the
eastern half of the garden underwent extensive renovation. An intricate
reclaimed paver walkway was added. The irrigation system was revamped
providing a more comprehensive and appropriate coverage. This allowed for
new garden beds to be installed. This encompassing view of the garden shows
the serpentine walkway winding its way through the newly installed plant
LIFESTYLE LANDSCAPING, INC.
Schieffer Insurance is one of the few businesses in downtown Amherst to have
any greenspace. They wanted to use their limited resource to benefit the
community by installing a lush calming garden. Japanese bloodgrass is aglow.
A lot of grasses were used to avoid damage to opening car doors. Pockets of
Yarrow ‘Moonshine’ compliment the blue-needled Foxtail Spruce. The
landscape has matured nicely and has fulfilled the clients wish to give the
community a garden to enjoy!
