Harry Ransom Center Landscape Re-Design

HRC Water Efficient Plaza

Year: 2011

Grant Amount: $30,799

The Green Fee sponsored the redesign of the large, sunken planting areas in front of the Harry Ransom Center. This new zeriscape installation not only conserves water but also provides an elegant contrast to the Live Oaks of UT. 2550 square feet of new plants were added, and Facilities Services estimates this area will save 72,000 gallons of water per year compared to a standard flowering bush installation.
