McEuen Going Green w/Trees, Shrubs

Hundreds of trees, shrubs, ornamental grasses and ground covers (the lowest growing layer of vegetation below shrubs) continue to be trucked into McEuen Park as landscapers plant the greenery at a feverish pace.“We have significantly increased the number of trees in the downtown with this project,” said landscape architect Dell Hatch of Welch Comer Engineers. “Obviously, McEuen Park is going to have a much more lush appearance than previously at McEuen Field.” Upon completion, the park will be home to 202 trees, 2,350 shrubs, 1,922 ornamental grasses, and 366 ground covers, Hatch said/Keith Erickson, Coeur d'Alene Today.
