About the Garden
This beautifully landscaped garden contains a variety of plants that ensure year-round color, textures and interest. The front of the bed is denoted with a sprawling evergreen juniper, which carries the viewers eye to a beautiful, flowering, lacy hemlock. In the background, decorative grasses play in the breeze while Scotch Pines, dwarf Sumac and Honey Locusts trees form a dark green canopy that makes the sponsorship panel stand out.
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!
