Summer Research Project 2008

A New Design for Lyman Pond Utilizing Native Wetland Plants

Building on the internship work of Sophie Argetsinger in 2008, design a new shrub and perennial planting scheme for the shores of Lyman Pond. Invasive species, sedimentation, and aeration problems will be solved by mechanical means and create an opportunity for a renovated garden space. Develop a native plant list including site requirements and mature size, address issues of safety and public access, and produce a design for this highly visible landscape feature.
