Eagle Scout Parkstrip Project to Save City Huge Amounts of Water

Last week a local scout troop underwent a huge project to take a parkstrip of grass and convert it to a waterwise landscape.

Scout Group Photo Jaedon White led his scout troop as part of his Eagle Scout Project to save water and beautify the intersection of 2200 west and Canterwood Drive.

The project included removing a few dying trees and 2000 square feet of grass and lots of weeds. Once the area was clear an all new drip irrigation system was installed. The scouts then planted 5 trees and over 50 native and drought tolerant plants and bushes. Rock mulch was then added to create a beautiful xeriscape that will save over 10,000 gallons a month.
