About the Garden
This expressway garden’s mile-long design allows for a wide array of plantings. Near the sponsorship panel on the Pulaski Road entrance ramp, a grove of trees and groundcover make the sponsorship panel a focal point. Further inbound, the site is characterized by broad sweeping mow lines and native fescues. The sustainable plantings show your true dedication to the greening and beautification of Chicago!
100 gardens cover almost 150 acres of roadside landscapes on all major expressways leading in and out of Chicago
The Expressway Partnership Program
The Expressway Partnership Program turns dreary embankments into ribbons of green parkways weaving through the city. More than 100 gardens comprise the Program, covering almost 150 acres of roadside landscapes on all major expressways leading into and out of the city. Each garden is carefully planned using native shrubs, trees, and perennials that require fewer resources and are well adapted to the harsh roadside growing conditions. We work closely with professional landscape crews to provide plant care, weed control, mowing, and litter pickup from April through October to ensure our gardens always look their best!
