The gardens were located in partial shade near existing downspouts and planted with native species including Gaura, Rudbeckia, Eupatorium, Silene, Polystichium acrostichoides, Tradescantia, Sisyrinchium Suwanee, Phlox, Iris versicolor, and Panicum. This project was completed through partnership of the Lower Shore Land Trust with funding from the Chesapeake Bay Trust.
