Wilder Wheelock


This planting was for a business along busy Shelburne Road in South Burlington, Vermont. I created a dune-scape with ornamental grasses, boulders, and gravel wash. The intent was to provide a small oasis of nature to contrast with the prevailing landscape of pavement and concrete. These materials also stand up to the abuse of salt and winter plowing.

This mature landscape was overgrown. I pruned it heavily, but in such a way that kept its naturalistic appeal. Next to the mature growth were bare spots. I filled these with similar shrubs so that the new blended with the old.
