Project: Chicago Park District Peace Garden Reconstruction

Pizzo company: ecology + vision, llc

Details of our work: Developed a landscape plan utilizing plant species known to be native to Cook County prior to European settlement. The Park District required immediate impact; therefore a balanced mixture of gallon, quart and potted native plant material was utilized. This added a layer of complexity to the project having to ensure that any native plant material specified for the garden was available commercially and furthermore available in gallon size containers.
