Parkway Improvement Project – Landscaping Update
Last month, the Town announced plans for a Kiawah Island Parkway improvement project that would include improvements to the landscaping between the roundabout and the main gate. Outdoor Spatial Design (OSD) was selected to design the landscaping component, and initial conceptual renderings were distributed to the community for feedback.
At yesterday’s meeting, OSD presented Town Council with its site analysis and various concepts for consideration. Each concept utilized more than 80% native plants and incorporated strategies to reduce and filter stormwater runoff, minimize the use of pesticides, and enhance wildlife habitat. Through a consensus, Town Council directed OSD to put together an estimated cost to complete the project and on-going maintenance costs based on the selected conceptual rendering.
