Hedgerow II

Hedgerow II

This hedgerow is located along the length of Hills Drive and Hutchinson Drive as a new addition to SmartLandscape’s existing landscape projects portfolio. The project is led by the SmartLandscape team and affiliated WCAE staff. This border hedgerow demonstration project will be showcased to UC Davis partners, neighboring farms, and land managers in efforts to suppress weed populations, benefit wildlife, increase water infiltration, and promote low water-use local native plant species in landscapes across Davis and other communities.
