GardenArt Goes Back to School

The past few weeks, the GardenArt crew has been working hard to assist the Tippecanoe School Corporation get ready for the first day of school. Each school had its own unique projects and designs but GardenArt stepped up and got the job done. Working to support kids especially within our public schools gives GardenArt special pride and satisfaction. Below are examples of three of the projects recently completed by GardenArt.

Burnett Creek Elementary School

In preparation for the students to return to school, the playground area needed new mulch. For a school like Burnett Creek, this is an important and massive job. GardenArt was excited to be a part of the project.

Harrison High School

Harrison High was the recipient of monetary gift to add new trees in the Raiders’ athletic complex. It was important to get these new trees planted before the first home game. GardenArt managed the entire project for TSC and the trees look beautiful in their new home. Harrison Raiders fans and athletes will be able to enjoy this new cluster of trees for many years to come.

Klondike Middle School

TSC needed some modifications to the main front entrance of Klondike Middle School. Tapping into GardenArt’s expertise and experience with impressive entrances, stone walls and outdoor spaces, TSC engaged the crew at GardenArt for this design and installation. The new entrance and wall was completed just in time for the onslaught of tweens and teens in just a few days.

Case Study – Outdoor Classroom

Cumberland Elementary, West Lafayette School Corporation,  Case Study, Outdoor Classroom, GardenArt

Customer: West Lafayette School Coroporation

Date: Summer, 2003

This project is an excellent illustration of our landscape contracting services and our diverse service offerings. The courtyard was a weedy, over grown mess. The West Lafayette Community School Corporation hired the architecture firm of Durkin, Shoulders, Veasey and Parrot to redesign the courtyard. GardenArt was the successful bidder for the project.

It’s scope included drainage (both flat roofs drain into the area) using a dry creek bed, concrete paver walkways, decomposed granite pathways, geometric raised planters for school projects, a bridge to span the dry creek bed, a water garden, fencing to provide security, the use of outcropping stone to create a small outdoor classroom setting and extensive plantings.

As problems cropped up, we worked with the Landscape Architect of record to develop creative solutions which maintained the spirit of the design while fitting the realities of the site.

This project, relative to conventional classrooms, provides the WLCSC with an excellent value and a unique outdoor learning environment.
