Keller Elementary School
Client: Openlands, Chicago Public Schools
With Openlands guidance, the Christy Webber Landscapes team worked with Keller Elementary’s Garden Committee to develop a design concept that responded to the particular needs of the school. Through multiple meetings and design reviews, the team developed a program that included an outdoor classroom, a butterfly garden, a rock garden, and an edibles garden. With the program in mind, the team was able to develop a concept that surpassed the goal of removing 2,000 square feet of impervious pavement.
