What is the existing and proposed ground cover?

The existing area is non-irrigated mowed turf and in dry years the turf ends up burning up, becoming yellow. The basin is proposed to have native plantings that are hardier with deeper roots that hold up to dry conditions much better. The native plantings also provide color and an opportunity to support wildlife. Providing support for wildlife and pollinators is an initiative of the City.
