Designing a Kentucky office building landscape

There are many landscape features that make Kentucky what it is: limestone rock outcrops, durable plantings that take dry summers with infrequent downpours, and undulating hills of grasses.  The rocks found on the site during construction were used to build mini retaining walls to add interest to the required berms to shield the parking lots from the street.  The rocks formed backdrops for the plantings at the entrances and for the street trees.  Grasses, easily maintained shrubs, and perennials form a multi-season landscape that work well in the Kentucky climate.
