This Chicago Public Schools high school on the west side of Chicago features a courtyard with blue stone pavers, lighting, and a beautiful Oak tree. Christy Webber Landscapes filled the space with perennials to create an oak savannah, a lightly forested grassland which used to be prevalent in Illinois.
We've had a warm and wet summer, and it doesn't appear to be slowing down. With the recent heavy rains, it's important to be mindful and not over-water your plants. It's best to let the roots dry out after a long rain storm before soaking them with more water.
