Prosper is awarded Municipal Excellence Award in Public Works

Prosper’s 2016 Municipal Excellence Award in the Public Works category for cities under 25,000 in population was recognized on Oct. 25 at the town council meeting. The Texas Municipal League award was presented at the TML conference in early October in Austin.

Prosper’s Public Works Department partnered with the Texas AM Agri-Life Extension Service and the Collin County Master Gardeners on a project that uses Earth-Kind methods on three gardens, one a demonstration garden, one a research garden and one a restored garden, a press release said. The Earth-Kind Landscaping method focuses on gardening success while protecting the environment.

One of the two gardens sits in the shadows of the water tower at Craig Street and First Street, and is designed to test the suitability of various types of dwarf shrubs for the local area. It is the first of its type in the country, conducting long-term research of these plants under conditions that can be found in the local are, a press release said.

The other garden is also on the grounds of the water tower and is designed to hold other types and species of plants. It is designed to provide information on the plants’ livability and viability for use in the area.

The group also restored a neglected garden at nearby Rucker Elementary School, the release said, taking a large patch of the school’s property from a weedy, untended garden that had fallen into serious decline and bringing it back to its original state.

All three gardens fully utilize the Earth-Kind Landscape Management System which is focused on preserving and protecting the environment.

“Earth-Kind is a registered trademark of AgriLife Extension,” said Steve George, Dallas AgriLife Extension landscape specialist, in an AgriLife Today interview. “Earth-Kind principles have been in use since the 1990s and emphasize environmental responsibility through water conservation and a reduction in fertilizers and pesticides.”

A 2009 Agricultural Health Study conducted by the National Cancer Institute reported that people who use imazethapyr, a general use pesticide, have increased risks of bladder and colon cancer. In addition, a 2007 study conducted by researchers at the Public Health Institute, the California Department of Health Services, and the UC Berkeley School of Public Health found a sixfold increase in risk factor for autism spectrum disorders for children of women who were exposed to organochlorine pesticides.

Project Manager Tristan Cisco said the research will be ongoing, with a focus on the success of the Earth-Kind method.

“These gardens are subject to the same sunlight, wind, temperature and rain conditions as every residence in Prosper,” Cisco said. “The difference will be in the use of the Earth-Kind system. (The AgriLife and Master Gardeners’) findings will be extremely helpful in water conservation and pesticide elimination.”

The TML, of which Prosper is a member, is a voluntary association of 1,150 Texas cities. Its primary objective is to serve the needs and advocate the interests of Texas cities. The TML Municipal Excellence Awards recognizes and encourages the achievements of Texas cities in meeting the challenges of municipal government.

The press release said the Award of Excellence is the second for Prosper, which won a similar award for its communication program in 2011.

Senior center receives landscaping improvements

Posted November 8, 2016


CLINTON TOWNSHIP — After the Clinton Township Civic Center received a parking lot and landscaping facelift, it’s now the Clinton Township Senior Center’s turn.

On Oct. 17, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved landscaping improvements that will improve the appearance of the island and north façade of the senior center building, in the southern end of the parking lot.

Public Services Director Mary Bednar said the new landscaping project is a transitional blending between native plants and stormwater.

“We’re trying to blend two different things,” Bednar said. “There’s a Japanese garden donated to us by our sister city (Yasu, Japan). So, we’re going to extend that theme into this landscaping with the same idea.”

The work is directly associated with the parking lot work. The total amount for all improvements costs $11,655 and will be completed by James P. Contracting Inc. The proposed scope of work was reviewed by township engineering firm Giffels Webster, the Public Services Department and Clinton Township Senior Center personnel.

The current plan involves planting trees and shrubs starting in October and concluding in November, while the fall season is intact. Since perennial plantings of flowers and turf grass are best suited for spring months like April and May, the contractor agreed to a split budget cost of $6,000 for the remainder of this year’s work and $5,655 for the culmination of work in spring 2017.

Scott Chabot, senior project manager for Giffels Webster, said the Civic Center’s landscaping included the strategic use of trees, shrubs, perennial plants and native grasses.

“We incorporated bioretention swales and rain gardens into the site design,” Chabot said. “These measures were recommended by the Clinton River Watershed Council’s ‘WaterTowns’ plan. The plant choices and landscape features serve a dual purpose: improved aesthetics and an intrinsic environmental benefit.

“The new landscaping has improved the overall appearance of the Civic Center campus and focuses on goals of naturally pretreating the stormwater and reducing the runoff volumes prior to flowing into the Canal Drain, a tributary to the Clinton River.”

Bednar added that vegetation is also in integral aspect of the project.

“(The vegetation has) stormwater infiltration qualities,” Bednar said. “They’re in these bioswells, these deep ditches. The plants get in there and absorb the water, rather than putting a pipe in the river.”

Chabot said the Civic Center’s final parking lot layout reduced total hard surface by 13 percent — another net environmental benefit.

Elizabeth Park horticulturist Bob Prill retires

West Hartford In his 22 years of tending the gardens at Elizabeth Park in West Hartford, horticulturist Bob Prill has planted thousands of tulip bulbs and annual flowers. This fall, sometime after the last tulip bulb has been planted, the 72-year-old Prill will pack up his gardening tools and retire.

Actually, “retirement” may be a misnomer for Prill’s future plans, since he will continue to operate his own landscaping business, and tend to the gardens he personally designed and maintains at his Newington home. Gardening is in Prill’s blood, and always has been.

“I always wanted to be a gardener — gardening is therapeutic,” says Prill, a thin, well-tanned man who looks like he has spent most of his life working outdoors. “I don’t even mind working in the gardens during summers like this past one, when the temperature hit 95 degrees so many days.”

As a child, Prill says he learned his love of plants from his grandmother, who tended her own gardens in Hartford with great care. Prill later attended the University of Connecticut College of Agriculture, cramming every possible horticulture class into the four semesters he was at Storrs.

“I took classes from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., five days a week, trying to learn everything I could,” Prill recalls. He says he didn’t see the need to complete his degree; he wanted to get out into the world and garden. He has run his own landscaping business for more than 45 years.

Prill was hired as a gardening supervisor by the City of Hartford in 1994, overseeing gardens throughout the city, plus Elizabeth Park, for 11 years. From 2005 to the present, he has been a consulting horticulturist for Elizabeth Park Conservancy, a non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining, restoring, and protecting the gardens, grounds and buildings on the historic site that was bequeathed to the City of Hartford and opened to the public in 1897.

The Conservancy’s mission to maintain and protect Elizabeth Park’s gardens has also been Prill’s mission. There is scarcely an inch of the Park’s famous gardens that doesn’t reflect his touch. Every year, Prill designs, plants, mulches and maintains Elizabeth Park’s annual gardens, also propagating thousands of plants from seeds or cuttings. He selects and orders the tulip bulbs every spring from DeVroomen Garden Products in Holland in anticipation of the first major display of spring blooms at Elizabeth Park. He then plants all 11,000 bulbs every October with the help of his volunteers. Prill has pruned the historic rose bushes for which Elizabeth Park is most famous, and tended to lesser-known treasures in the Park. The Blue Atlas Cedar trees that form a dramatic entrance to the Shade Garden were, in fact, planted by Prill and his Park Supervisor many years ago, and are just one example of his personal and creative contributions to the Park’s landscaping.

Prill has also made it his mission to share his love of gardening. He taught a popular workshop at Elizabeth Park each year in early spring, delivering home gardening advice on starting plants from seed or cuttings. He is the force behind Elizabeth Park’s equally popular annual spring Greenhouse Show and Sale in March.

To prepare for the Greenhouse Show and Sale, Prill and his volunteers work from November until March, forcing more than 8,000 bulbs for the eagerly anticipated two-week event.

Prill prefers particular categories of tulips such as triumph, single early and double early, which are best suited and more successful for forcing than some other categories favored for planting directly into the garden beds. In addition to the potted tulips, Prill pots many other bulbs for the show including muscari, daffodils, and hyacinth for a wide variety of color. This year’s one-day greenhouse sale on March 26 raised $10,000 for Elizabeth Park. It was Prill’s last greenhouse sale at the Park.

Prill was honored at the Elizabeth Park Annual Meeting on Sept. 20 at the Pond House Café. The Conservancy presented him with the Theodore Wirth Award, named after the designer who created the Rose Garden in 1904, in recognition of Prill’s outstanding work in the gardens and greenhouses of Elizabeth Park as Horticultural Consultant to the Conservancy.

Junior League Of Greater Princeton To Hold Designer Showhouse And Gardens At 75 Cleveland Lane

Princeton, NJ — The 19th Designer Showhouse and Gardens will take place this spring at 75 Cleveland Lane in Princeton, the Junior League of Greater Princeton (JLGP) announced.

The home will be open for public tours on Sunday, April 30.

The event continues Thursday-Sundays through Saturday, May 27, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

The Showhouse will also play host to lectures, luncheons and special events.

Proceeds from this biennial fundraiser support the Junior League’s mission, and are reinvested back into the community via programs that benefit local women’s and children’s initiatives, grants to area community organizations and scholarships for female high school seniors who have demonstrated a strong commitment to community service and voluntarism.

The Showhouse event also aims to raise awareness about the rewarding opportunities and valuable leadership training the JLGP provides its volunteer members.

The Junior League is seeking talented, innovative and creative interior and landscape designers to join them in making this Designer Showhouse a success in raising critical funds for the JLGP and its community projects in the Greater Princeton area.

A Designer’s Open House will be held on site on Nov. 16 and 17, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for interested interior and landscape designers. Designers planning to attend the open house must register online at https://www.jlgp.org/showhouse/ by Nov. 14 to reserve their spot. Space is limited.

Since 1974, the JLGP has produced 18 Designer Showhouses, showcased more than 500 curated spaces inspiring tens of thousands of home and garden design enthusiasts, invested thousands of volunteer hours and raised nearly $2 million dollars.

Renowned luxury home builder, Jay Grant of Grant Homes, joined with JLGP to create this showcase.
Internationally celebrated cabinetry designer and craftsman, Christopher Peacock will install his classic British cabinetry to the Showhouse kitchen.

75 Cleveland Lane is well-known by Princeton insiders and art aficionados alike as a creative hive.

The impressive stone house was once home to J. Seward Johnson Jr, sculptor and founder of Grounds for Sculpture and his first wife, Barbara “Kristina” Johnson, a student turned fashion model turned one of America’s Top 100 Collectors of Art and Antiques (1986-1996).

After their highly publicized divorce in 1964, Kristina Johnson, along with her daughter Jeniah “Kookie” Johnson, remained in the house up until her death in 2013. Her passion for the arts influenced the transformation of her manse into part home, part museum housing her immense and eclectic collection of fine, folk, ceramic and ethnographic arts.

Fast forward to today, contractors, craftsman and carpenters—all artists in their own right—are buzzing inside the hive, rebuilding the house inside the stone hull at the direction of Jay Grant, who purchased the property from Kookie Johnson in December of 2015.

The view of 75 Cleveland Lane has always invited curiosity—the front of the house positioned away from the street. Passersby have only been allowed to see the back of the house enclosed by a stone wall with a custom wrought iron gate, a side view of the carriage house, a hint of courtyard and a smattering of whimsical sculptures dotting the grounds.

Grant’s plan transfigures the front of the house to face Cleveland Lane, lifting the veil and opening the new front door to Showhouse guests.

Tours will include the three floors of the main house featuring 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms and 4 fireplaces, the carriage house which boasts a 5 bay-garage and 1-bedroom apartment and the estate’s gardens and grounds.

The carriage house bays will house the Showhouse cafe and boutique.

The Junior League of Greater Princeton is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

The Junior League of Greater Princeton focuses its efforts on the needs of women and children in Mercer and Bucks counties, as well as the surrounding areas.

Women over the age of 21, committed to voluntarism, regardless of race, religion or national origin are welcome as members.

The Junior League of Greater Princeton is part of the Association of Junior Leagues International, which includes 293 Junior Leagues in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Great Britain.

Michelle Obama calls on U.Va. for gardening design

LIFE

U.Va. students, faculty renovate First Lady’s Kitchen Garden


The design team created the White House Garden in First Lady Michelle Obama’s vision for an outdoor sanctuary. 


As President Barack Obama and his family wrap up their time in the White House, First Lady Michelle Obama intends to leave a lasting legacy on the property through her “Let’s Move!” initiative with a revival of the White House Kitchen Garden.

Beginning in early May, the National Park Service called on Architecture Prof. Beth Meyer, a member of the United States Commission of Fine Arts and former dean of the Architecture School, to assemble a group of University students, faculty and alumni to design and construct a new layout for the garden complete with tables and benches, as well as an arbor for the entryway.

The team was challenged to design a space for ages from all walks of life, whether the visitors are fourth-graders or heads of state. Architecture graduate student Josh Aronson said the task was to create something “not too alternative but graceful to fit all ages.”

“[It had to have] the aesthetic of a farmer’s garden but with the grace of the White House,” Aronson said.

Ultimately, they came up with a theme — “e pluribus unum,” which means “out of many, one.” In continuity with the theme, University alumnus Owen Weinstein explained even the tables had two parts and could come together in a variety of ways.

“It’s a fundamental American ideal — we are better together than apart,” Weinstein said.

With this in mind, they designed tables and benches made with strips of seventeen different types of wood sourced from different places across the country representing agriculture, food production. This includes wood from chicken coops, wine vats and pickle barrels, as well as wood from the homes and farms of three founding fathers — Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe. Additionally, the structures even consist of wood from the home of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Roger Sherry, University alumnus, landscape architect and master craftsman, explained the symbolism of the garden construction. Because visitors face west toward the Appalachian Mountains at the garden’s entrance, the team designed the entrance to be made of oak native to the Appalachians. Likewise, when leaving the garden, guests face the east, so the exit is composed of cypress native to that region.

Sherry also shared the First Lady’s vision for a long-lasting natural space. Consequently, the team included steel within the structures — for the arbor specifically had to withstand the immense amount of gravitational force the Marine One Helicopter creates when it lands.

Along with its structural renovation, the team reinvented the layout of the garden, reflective and encouraging of the “Let’s Move!” campaign.

“The garden now has a heart, a place to gather, and it feels welcoming,” Meyer said.

There is also something significant in working on a renovation to a garden so permanent.

“People [are always] taking iconic pictures of the White House,” Weinstein said. Because the garden is visible from the south fence, it is now “permanently part of that photo.”

The project is ultimately reflective of the American desire for invention but also the importance to look back at the past and reflect, Weinstein said.

All right, kids, who wants to rip out grass, replace it with rocks?

Remember watching Saturday morning cartoons? My days of doing that go all the way back to a time when breakfast cereals actually used the word “sugar” in their names. The dreaded word was replaced by “corn” or “honey” eventually.

You may want to take a moment to check out a cartoon this Saturday called “Lucky Dog.” It’s part of the “CBS Dream Team” programming, so you’ll need to check your local CBS affiliate for the time.

I’m pointing you to the show because this Saturday’s episode will feature a visit with TurfMutt and the Outdoor Powers, an environmental stewardship program created by the Education and Research Foundation of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI).

OPEI’s president and CEO, Kris Kiser, appears in the episode. Kiser’s dog, a rescue he named Lucky, became the model for TurfMutt.

OPEI’s TurfMutt initiative, in which the organization now works closely with Scholastic, a producer of books and many other educational materials, is looking more astute by the day. A severe and lingering drought in several parts of the country appears to be kindling a war on grass lawns, and such misbegotten enthusiasms have a way of drowning out common sense.

You can rest assured that neither OPEI nor Scholastic is looking to recruit kids to take sides in a public policy dispute. They’re simply sharing important facts about the benefits of living landscapes.

Unfortunately, examples of non-living landscapes – “yards” that now consist of gravel or a mulch-like material rather than grass – have exploded on the West Coast, which paid homeowners attractive incentives to replace their lawns. State officials in California will tell you that plan didn’t work out as they had hoped.

What TurfMutt hopes to accomplish on the “Lucky Dog” program is to provide basic education on the importance of trees, shrubs and, yes, grass, to the health of our environment, habitat for plants and animals (including pollinators) and the quality of life of the human beings living on a given patch of ground.

Reducing heat, sequestering carbon while creating oxygen, inhibiting stormwater runoff and slowing erosion – these are just a few of the benefits of maintaining living landscapes.

OPEI’s Kiser – and TurfMutt, too, for that matter – will be the first to acknowledge that water is precious. Choosing the right grass for your area can make a huge difference in the amount of water it needs. So can modern irrigation technologies such as drip irrigation.

I hope our kids are watching on Saturday when great ideas about conservation include the idea that conserving a place for children (and pets) to play makes a lot more sense than replacing lawns with giant piles of pea gravel.

Ideas for Re-Designing Your Existing Swimming Pool

‘);
}());

Whether you are tired of the same old look of your pool or you want to enhance it to match the appearance of a newly constructed home or landscape, consider a redesign as opposed to a totally new swimming pool. Pools can be re-designed to not only save the money on the cost of demolition of an old one and construction of a new one, but also to customise your pool to give it a whole new look.

Changing the Size and Shape

You may not realise that your existing pool can be deepened, extended, widened or even reshaped using the latest in concrete pool techniques. You are not bound by your current style and size. This is great news if you want to turn a shallow wading pool into one that you can dive into or perhaps change the shape to accommodate your new home or landscaping additions.

Altering Pool Designs and Appearance

The colour of the interior plaster finish, paint and tiling can be changed to create an entirely new look. With the latest advances in pool technology, you can get a Spectrum quartz finish which comes in a variety of textures and colours and can be complemented by designer tiles. You can invest a little extra in your pool re-design and get a mosaic tile pattern too which can be customised to your specific design scheme.

Adding Some Extra Features

With a pool re-design, you have the option of choosing some extra features which can really enhance your swimming experience. Pool landscaping such as additional paving, garden planter boxes, decorative fencing, raised platforms for lounging and water features such as fountains and water walls add visually appealing elements.

New lighting, particularly the kind that can change colours underwater can be quite interesting. Spa features are popular too, especially if you want a place to kick back and relax to enjoy hot, pulsating jets of water to ease muscle aches and pains.

Making your Re-Design a Reality

Regarding swimming pools and their re-design, it is best to work with a professional pool company to ensure your ideas can be made into reality. A professional can walk you through a re-design and let you know what is possible, given the current state of your pool. They will be able to create a solid estimate of cost as well as a timeline to complete the project, keeping building permits and specifications in mind. Re-designing your pool is an excellent option if you don’t want to demolish your old one and start over.
