Greetings from Purple crew!
This week our crew spent time in North Austin getting a pocket park started in the process of opening to the public. When we first arrived the property was covered in Johnson Grass, Hackberry trees and worst of all, poison ivy.
To make this space enjoyable we slathered ourselves in poison ivy pre-contact solution and hoped for the best. We were also removing the Johnson grass by hand in order to limit our use of herbicide. Although a painstaking process, we managed to get this area spruced up nearly to completion. The neighborhood has show lots of excitement and we cant wait to see the final project!
