Seattle Residential: I Do That: March 2011

Ravenna Park Traffic Circle Project Nears Completion

The Ravenna Park Traffic Circle (Naomi Circle) redo is nearing completion. Back in the fall of 2009 Sue had an idea and the neighborhood agreed. The English Ivy and a few trees added little to the neighborhood.  Pulling out 30+ year old ivy by the roots is no mean feat.

Pulling ivy

But we persisted. With a grant from the city work continued through the winter. In May of 2010 I reported on the progress to date. But knowing that summers are the dry months we waited until fall to begin planting. The planting went well. As we near the end of the grant period we're into the final phase. Here is a list of the flowering plants we'll plant over the next two weekends. Once they are in and a few of them blooming I will post pictures.

All of the plants we've planted are native to the Northwest and I look forward to sharing them with you.
