Nativescape developed a greenway entrance to the DTE Energy’s River Rouge Power Plant. A multifunctional landscape approach was used in a natural landscape design. The design used all Michigan native plants that are found in the Detroit River watershed according to presettlement vegetation research. Much of the native plant stock used on the project was Michigan native species.
Native flower gardens beatify the plant entrance and Wildlife Habitat Council wildlife habitat certification sign. Bioswales along the road treat storm water run off in a natural way by creating an infiltration zone. The natural green corridor will provide fugitive dust control, wildlife habitat, screening and beautification. The project was completed in the spring of 2007.
