Dense, colorful vegetation protects the vulnerable planters between the primary parking
lot and the building entry. Daylilies and Flower Carpet Roses are planted underneath
the Crape Myrtle trees.
Many of the parking lot planters were under-planted with Mock Strawberry. This technique
gives the planter an established look almost immediately, but requires attentive
maintenance to keep the groundcover out of the shrubs.
All the shrub areas on the project are drip irrigated, as required by the City of
Dixon. A self-flushing filter, operated automatically by the irrigation controller,
protects the drip emitters from clogging.
