Landscaping the front of a SCHOOL!
My principal just greenlighted my science research class to landscape the south-facing front of our high school. Right now, there is NOTHING there except for a few scraggly evergreen shrubs and a few scattered trees. Along the base of the building, it's just grass. I would like to put in some annuals and perennials, in a low-maintenance setup. Does anyone have a suggestion as to a landscaping scheme? Of course, the costs must be kept low as we must look to grant money to buy plants and materials.
It's a very large school building and so there is plenty of area which needs beautifying. My science research class hopes to make it a big research project by comparing 2 brands of fertilizer on plant growth.
Thanks for any advice.
