University of Texas at Dallas

University and College Grounds (Mid-Size)
Honor Award

From the Urban Forest Trail, filled with native trees and shrubs, to the Bee Hive Outdoor Classroom, which features wildflowers and native grasses in a no mow zone for Biology and Ecology students, the University of Texas at Dallas incorporates both formal and naturalized areas seamlessly. Creative use of bioswales and flood plains allow pollinator gardens to flourish and storm quality control measures, such as retaining ponds, have been built as relaxing water features.
