Poetry garden

Integrity Sustainable Planning and Design offers award-

winning planning and design services

Could the outdoor area around your home, office, school or neighborhood use a beautiful, ecologically-friendly makeover? Join the City of Worthington's Northwest Library Branch in partnering with Integrity to make your yard more useable, colorful, delicious, wildlife-friendly and water-wise. Northwest Library's 'Poetry Path' garden, shown here, has natural spring-like water features, permeable pathways, rustic seating areas, and a dry creek-bed with native pebbles and boulders. An explosion of native plants absorbs excess stormwater runoff from the parking lot. Integrity also assisted the City of Worthington with the successful preparation of an Environmental Education Fund Grant through the Ohio EPA and a Conservation Fund Mini-grant through Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District to help pay for the project materials. This project was just awarded a 2017 Merit Design Award from the Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association.
