The Jackson County Road Commission wanted to vegetate a new section of Broad Road right-of-way and borrow area with native plants to reduce their long term maintenance. Nativescape developed a planting plan that accomplished the above for less and beautified the area at the same time.

Native Michigan prairie plants were used in place of topsoil and traditional grass mixes to beautify and help reduce maintenance for the new road. This proved to be less expensive than placing topsoil and planting with non-native grass species. Completed in 2003 the above picture shows the project site in 2005 after many of the native plants have matured and bloomed..
