Nice article in the Asheville Citizen Times about a playground I designed at Lake Julian. I hope they get the grant to fund it!

The design features an accessible looping trail, new play equipment, deck, art wall, sensory garden, sound garden, field and sound garden, and other features. The school is beginning a fundraising campaign for construction.C:UsersMary WeberDocumentsCurrent ProjectsFairview Elementa

I attended the Tri-State American Society of Landscape Architects conference, held here in Asheville. I attended sessions on the positive economic impact of greenways, inclusive play spaces, low impact development and storm water management, design of meadows and other topics. I’m ready to implement some of these ideas!
