Wilcrest Drive Esplanades Receive Landscape Upgrades
Westchase District recently upgraded the landscaping of the medians along Wilcrest Drive between Westpark Drive and the Westpark Tollway. Three esplanades were cleared of dead plants and revamped to match the aesthetics of other medians in the District.
Workers installed ribbons of "dry creek beds" consisting of moss boulders and river rock. Next, they accented them with Drift roses, Dianella, Foxtail Fern, Society Garlic, Asian Jasmine, Red Yucca and Dwarf Bottle Brush. Finally, they topped off the beds and areas around trees with a layer of mulch. "These plant varieties have proved to work well in Houston's climate," said Irma Sanchez, Westchase District's vice president of projects. "They add splashes of color to the District's roadways and give the area a beautiful and distinctive flair."
