A few cool things about
the Inspiration Garden…
What is River-Friendly
Landscaping?
• Sheet mulching (such as newspaper or
cardboard) was used in parts of the garden
to help reduce weeds.
River-Friendly Landscaping is an
environmentally friendly way of gardening.
River-Friendly Landscaping practices are
designed to help you create a healthy,
beautiful, vibrant yard while conserving water,
reducing yard waste, and preventing pollution
of our air and local rivers. Below are the 7
Principles of River-Friendly Landscaping.
• Most of the plants in the garden need less
water than the typical yard.
• The decomposed granite under the shade
structure allows rain water to soak into the
ground which helps reduce runoff.
• The garden features 2 less thirsty
turf varieties that use less water and
maintenance than typical lawns.
