George W Bush Presidential Center

The George W. Bush Presidential Center seeks to re-create the blackland prairie, Post Oak savanna and Cross Timbers woodland that once dominated north Texas. The Ecosystem Design Group assisted Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates in maximizing not only the beauty and recreational value of the site, but the environmental benefits that can be provided by such sustainable features as native plants and turf, restored plant communities, rain gardens, biofiltration basins, wetlands, wildflower meadows and bioswales. The group provided an initial site assessment, reviewed soil specifications, recommended plants and developed a 5-year maintenance and operation plan to control invasive species and ensure success.
