Black Eyed Susan at Boschert

Just a few more photos from my recent visit to the Boschert Greenway Living Retaining Wall.  If you are in the St. Louis region, follow Highway 370 through St. Charles, the wall will be visible from the road near the N 3rd Street exit.  As it grows out and the Missouri native plants establish, the wall itself will almost become invisible under vegetation!

Have you seen living walls in your neck of the woods?

Boschert Greenway Living Wall

The Ribbon Cutting for the Boschert Greenway in St. Charles was today.  A living retaining wall (visible from Highway 370), native landscaping, and permeable pavement make this trail stand out as an example of sustainable development and Low Impact Development.  This is part of an effort to build up parks, greenways, and trails by Great Rivers Greenway and promote walking and bicycling.

The wall, with new native plant plugs.  They will soon grow to cover the wall!
