LANDSCAPE

An authentic, yet attractive assortment

of plant species are proposed for the

campus landscape. Existing, historically

significant trees, gardens and other

elements will be preserved, while new

assets will be introduced.

PRAIRIE PLANTINGS•

Dedicated to the

restoration of the native

Rock County prairie prior

to European settlement,

these native grasses and

flowers would extend

across the campus on its eastern edge.

This landscape provides a setting for

telling the stories of Rock County history

and helps brings the visitor into a

broader Rock County context.

FLOWER GARDENS•

Two flower gardens,

located near the

Core will re-

introduce historic

planting beds

originally on the site:

Mrs. Tallman's Rose Garden & flowers

from the 19th century. Planting these

elements would aid in campus

aesthetic, programming and revenue.

VEGETABLE & HERB GARDEN•

Adjacent to the Wilson King Stone

House, these “kitchen gardens” will

complement the themes and

operations of the Wilson King Stone

House, by being used in outdoor food

programming and interior food

demonstrations and classes.

FRUIT TREES•

Heirloom apple varieties that the

Tallman family grew. Select varieties that

can be used in activities such as cider

making, cooking and similar activities.
