Landscape Design Overview:
This award-winning design added both curb appeal and excellent wildlife habitat with its use of native plant material. Hundreds of different species of wildflower perennials and grasses were used to bring life to the project's 25,000 square feet of plant beds.

Unlike many Midwest landscape designers, Dan Nelson, project designer and landscape division manager for the Kansas City-based company, sees the Midwest Prairie as a viable design approach with a broad palette of plant material. "We saved as much of the existing landscape as we could by incorporating it into a larger central plains theme," explained Nelson.
