River Point Place
River Point Place building sits on the Chicago river directly across from the Merchandise Mart
River Point is a unique combination of dazzling, well-manicured turf and stunning planting beds. All of this landscape design beauty surrounds Calatrava’s Constellation sculpture, making River Point a magnificent place to work and relax. Balanced Environments, Inc. uses specialized drip irrigation systems that collect rain water to water both the turf and planting beds in this river front park setting. This stunning site anchors the base of the Chicago River running due West with both upper and lower levels designed with green landscape scenes. You can view this wonderful greenery from the second floor deck or the onsite restaurant’s outdoor patio. From the 12,000 square feet of phenomenal walkways to its relaxing seating nestled in over 30 mature trees, River Point provides the largest public green space along the river walk.
Covenant Living of Northbrook is a thriving retirement community on 60 acres in Northbrook, Illinois
A dedicated two man landscape maintenance crew is present on the property every weekday to police the grounds and deadhead seasonal color plantings keeping the property beautiful for the 550 residents and 300 employees. Tenured foremen and a site supervisor are responsible for regularly inspecting the property. There is an additional dedicated 2 man watering crew on site a minimum of 6 days a week for moisture needs. Irrigation zones and sprinkler heads providing too much or too little moisture are adjusted regularly to keep plants and turf vigorous but not over watered. The irrigation system has hose bib access in the 2 residential vegetable garden plots for resident use. There is a 2” irrigation main line plumbed near the landscape staging yard to quickly fill water truck tanks. 75 Landscape sized specimen trees have been installed over the past 5 years to replace the aged trees that have been lost. Gator bags are used to maintain proper moisture levels in these newer trees. In 2021, 50, 1 gallon trees, procured by campus administration, through the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District free tree program were installed on site. Small trees are protected with vibrant colored cages and require daily hand watering. To date, we have not lost a single seedling tree. Trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials are scouted regularly for evidence of insects and diseases. A pest management program that addresses curative needs has been established to assist with reduced budgets. Strategic pre-winter and post-winter applications of soil conditioners are utilized in years where campus budget allows.
