galena strides

Bluegreen directed streetscape design to establish a more comfortable pedestrian condition and to guide movement through and around businesses. Utilizing Silva Cells, the first application of the technology in an Aspen right-of-way, and avoiding a lawn strip, the design is water-wise and street tree-sensitive. Street trees will survive longer and live healthier; the Silva Cell reservoir also captures runoff from the sidewalks before it reaches the street.

Details and material selections both in hardscape and architecture imply permanence and longevity. Large five and six inch caliper street trees and creeping veronica give the softscape a mature, full appearance, while white columbine and obedient provide seasonal interest.

Open to the public, this discussion offered Bluegreen insights into ways that gardeners and landscape professionals can make changes in their designs and practices to create ecologically sensitive, healthy spaces.
