PROJECT : The Girard

The Girard

  • CATEGORY : Residential
  • LOCATION : Boston
  • DATE : 2016

Offshoots developed a modular, low-maintenance planting plan capable of withstanding tough urban conditions.

Offshoots developed the planting plan for The Girard, a mixed-use development in Boston. Urban conditions are hard on plants so special care was used to select species that are low-maintenance, heat tolerant, have interesting foliage and seasonal interest (to eliminate the need for annual plantings). All plant beds have a thick layer of groundcover that will quickly grow in and reduce the need for mulch. By planting appropriate plants for the site conditions the owner will have a fraction of the maintenance and upkeep that they would with a traditional lawn and annual plantings – this is better for the budget and the environment.
