About this project

In 2012, Liesfeld completed the West Garden Site Improvements at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. The project featured landscape improvements, a complex erosion control sequence, trails, bridges and dredging of a large landscape pond. The project was a very unique and complex project because the park remained open to visitors and the construction area featured several species of plants that have been cultivated from all over the world. Due to this, Liesfeld could not use traditional heavy equipment in the construction area and instead implemented use of hydraulic dredging pumps and pump trucks to move the material to a dump location away from the project.
