Beautifying Public Spaces Through Landscape Enhancements

Show Support for a Community Asset Through Landscaping for Parks & Public Spaces

Parks and trails are integral to a local community. They serve as gathering spaces to connect with nature, green areas for healthy recreational activity, and natural habitats for local plants and wildlife. Proper landscape design for public parks and trails ensures the community can gain the full benefits of this essential asset.

Davey Tree has extensive experience working with park agencies and public recreational spaces to maintain and enhance the landscape of their parks and trails. From basic maintenance like plant and turf care to large-scale green infrastructure installations to tree care that ensures public safety, Davey’s team of certified experts can bring your desired landscape design for public parks to life.


Sand Run Metroparks Partnership

Davey Resource Group performed engineering and construction services for Sand Run Metroparks in Akron, OH. The project focused on erosion control and channel stabilization and impacted over 7,000 linear feet of the Sand Run tributary. Once completed, the project improved in-stream wildlife habitat, fish passage, and long-term protection of park trails and infrastructure.


Benefits Of Sustainable Landscape Design

One large benefit of public parks and trails is to connect the community with nature. By implementing sustainable landscape designs, groundskeepers for public parks and recreation areas can strengthen that connection while conserving money and resources. Davey is well-versed in the best sustainable landscape design practices and can help implement them in a cost-effective manner.


Maintain the Health Of Public Trees

Urban forests like public parks and trails create safe spaces for communities to gather. By prioritizing tree care, park agencies and public recreation areas can show their commitment to a healthy urban forest while keeping their communities safe. Davey’s team of certified arborists can help create a management plan that can meet urban forest health and public safety goals.
