It’s Transformation Tuesday!
This week, we are featuring the Galleria Marchetti Expressway Garden, located on the Kennedy Expressway at the Ohio Street interchange entrance ramp. The site is viewed by 39,600 motorists daily, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.
This garden now features pink ‘double knockout’ roses, yellow ‘Stella de Oro’ daylilies, and lavender Russian sage, in addition to a grove of honey locust trees. It was tended to by Kinsella Landscape, LLC throughout the 2012 growing season. From April to November alone, we were able to remove 700 pounds of litter from this site!
Thank you to our Expressway Partner Galleria Marchetti for helping Chicago Gateway Green make this possible!
