Both the entry pavilion off of Crawford St. and the new maintenance facility at the far east end of the 15-acre site’s new parking lot are well underway. The Bohlin Cywinski Jackson-designed entry pavilion will also be available for rental for events and meetings (contact the Conservancy’s venue manager Linda Black at firstname.lastname@example.org for rental information). Plans are being made for the projected August planting schedule for the Garden Mount’s groundcover and hedges, the Family Garden’s structural plantings, the Pine Hill Walk’s trees and understory, and the Celebration Garden’s trees and large shrubs. Although it is August in Houston, irrigation infrastructure is in place to assure successful survival rates for these plantings. So let’s hope for good planting weather!
Remember to put the October 18 opening day on your calendar! Excitement is building!
