Case Study: University of Georgia



University of Georgia, Jackson Street Building

Ed Castro Landscape was selected to act as the landscape contractor for the renovation of the Jackson Street Building on the campus of the University of Georgia. This building had previously been used as part of the School of Art, but recently became the new home for the College of Environmental Design. The scope of work included the demolition of several stone “stage” features and broken concrete walkways, as well as some tree and plant removal. Construction included new walkways and stairs, a seat wall, site furniture, and a very extensive planting plan featuring native plants. Some of the challenges of this project included the very limited parking and access due to construction taking place at the same time as classes. By working with a variety of nurseries and growers, we were able to source all the plants on the plant list. The resulting landscape is one that serves as a beautiful complement to the College of Environmental Design.
