Valued Places In 2001, the Minnesota Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects published Valued Places: landscape architecture in Minnesota. This glove-box sized guidebook profiles 52 sites in the Land of Lakes, each of which has benefitted from design, care, or stewardship by landscape professionals. Here are a few samples that will thrill you with stunning fall color in the months ahead...

Aspen Parklands Between the conifer peat bogs of north central Minnesota

and the tallgrass prairie of North Dakota and Manitoba lie the aspen parklands. This ecosystem is unique in

the United States and occupies a narrow corridor slicing

north-south through northern Minnesota and southern Manitoba. As with many prairie-type ecosystems, the story of the aspen parklands is the story of fire. To the

west on the prairie, fire was prevalent, preventing any trees from getting significant foothold outside river floodplains. To the east in the bogs, fire was rare due to increased

precipitation and an abundance of surface water. In the

aspen parklands, fire was periodic, preventing large trees from becoming established, but allowing aspen, poplar,

Much of the parklands are farmed. Fire has also been suppressed over the last century, allowing larger trees to

become established. There are, however, several sites that

have been set aside to preserve and display the charms

of the aspen parklands. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources operates two Scientific and Natural Areas in the parklands. SNAs are publicly accessible

and are set aside for ecological study and restoration.

Red Wing


Founded in 1852, Red Wing is one of Minnesota’s most

historic and dramatic civic landscapes. The Mississippi River and the surrounding 300-foot high limestone bluffs define many downtown and neighborhood edges and contribute greatly to the city’s image and distinctiveness.

When Europeans first arrived in 1673 at the location now

occupied by Red Wing, they found a village of Dakota sited along the river at the base of Barn Bluff. In 1852, 171

boats arrived at Red Wing. By 1857, a year before statehood, this number increased to 926. In the early 1870s, Red Wing became one of the primary wheat markets of

the world, shipping by boat over one million bushels annually.

As I moved away from the actual convention site, things got a lot quieter. I will undoubtedly draw scowls for this

comment, but it seemed like Saint Paul on a normal day: clusters of folks at bus stops, a few walkers, a few cars, and a small clutch of lunchers in Mears Park at the other end of town. Aside from some streets sporting new “authorized vehicle lanes” for the speedy arrival or retreat – with police escort – of dignitaries, the town was pretty quiet.

Perhaps the true indicator of “where it’s at” is the presence

of the press. MSNBC was, of course, the big dog in Rice, but there were others. I was in Rice when the Code Pink

march made its way into the space. Suddenly, many of the people seemingly standing about without purpose pulled out cell phones, digital voice recorders, cameras,

and notebooks and began grabbing marchers for interviews. The plaza became a melee of protestors and press – a soapbox for the new millennium.

prevalent, their only agenda today: removing all traces

of the event and making their day’s wage. This morning after had a purposeful quietness and half-doneness again reminiscent of the State Fair as it closes for the year.

Damage and litter were practically nonexistent. No trees were scarred and all the street and park furniture looked

intact. By Saturday there would be little trace of the event at all. “Live from Saint Paul, Minnesota” would go back to being Saint Paul, culturally enriched by the experience, its public space well-used but unscathed.

Then, there’s the aesthetic. “In American gardens,” she says, “everything is knee high with the same size flower. They’re all about color.” British gardens, she says, perhaps owing to a climate and light quality that is more brooding, are highly textural and sculptural.

Beyond Bluegrass Don’t be fooled! All Kentucky bluegrass is not the same! A good turf blend should have genetic diversity.

Kentucky bluegrass is able to adapt to a wide range of growing conditions. Its strength is the ability to produce a

smooth, uniform, dense, dark green turf that mows clean. The extensive rhizome system of Kentucky bluegrass

provides excellent sod strength as well as the ability to recuperate after stress periods and self-repair quickly.

Kentucky bluegrass is a unique turf grass because it is a

true hybrid. This means that every seed is identical to the next. Other turf grasses like Tall Fescue, Creeping Red

Fescue, and Perennial Ryegrass all cross-pollinate, making

various traits like color, leaf texture, hardiness, vigor, and growth habit less exact.

That said, you can eliminate many of these variables by addressing them up front before you start. Here are nine critical steps to installing a higher-quality, lower-maintenance lawn.


A soil test should be run using the Morgan

Extracts, because this test measures “plant

available” nutrients, and helps determine the

proper fertility needs of the project.


Did you know that some varieties of bluegrass require half the mowing frequency compared to others? • Common types have a very upright growth habit, have an open crown, and low shoot density. • Improved types are less upright, have more shoot density, but still have an open crown. • Elite types have a prostrate growth habit (dwarf), compact crown, and high shoot density. • Cheap seed is the most expensive thing you can plant because it requires more maintenance. • Common types grow almost twice as fast as the elite types, therefore requiring more mowing and weed control. They also require more water and fertilizer to maintain top performance.

Soil preparation is the most important step to

successful seeding or sod establishment. All soil preparation for turf seed should start with a tiller,

followed by a power rake, or with tools designed to remove debris. The final surface should be loose and free of any clumps.

should be reduced, and the amount applied increased


The starter fertilizer should be formulated with

commercial fertilizers with low salts and chlorides. Standard agriculture fertilizers like Urea, DAP,

volatile, and produce a weak root system. Better products

There are better quality products available that have a less negative environmental impact, but that is for another article.


Seed formulations and application rates will vary based on the time of year the seeding occurs. For

Water management is critical for spring and summer seeding. The proper watering of a seed bed

requires frequent applications of water to keep the

seed bed moist, but not muddy. Then, as the grass begins

to sprout, and cover is established, watering frequency until watering just once a day during the summer when the turf is fully established.


A starter fertilizer should be applied about three

weeks after planting, or about ten days after germination of the first seeds. Success or failure rests on this

example: a blend of 80 percent bluegrass and 20

application. I have seen more jobs fail because fertilizer

helpful if the field is scheduled for use in the near future (less than six months).


A pre-emergent herbicide like Tupersan, would

also be recommended for spring or summer seeding, to reduce the annual grass weeds like Crabgrass,

Foxtail, and Barnyard grass.

Newly-seeded turf should be mowed as soon as it reaches mowing height (about four inches) because

Turf grass does not have to be high maintenance if you select the right seed. The fine leaf fescues can be used as “No Mow” turf, if properly blended; or used as an extremely low-maintenance turf for bike paths, berms, lake cabins, or an accent grass for native flowers. Kentucky bluegrass can also produce high quality lawns under low maintenance programs if the right seed is selected. The advantage Kentucky bluegrass offers is when weather, traffic, or other conditions damage the lawn or turf, water and fertilizer will generally repair these lawns in a couple of months, without the high cost of renovation.

it encourages root development and density. The

mowing height should start at about three inches and be reduced to planned maintenance height as the turf establishes. This will speed up establishment and reduce weed growth pressure.


A second application of starter fertilizer should be applied at about week seven or eight, promoting

growth and root mass. Stopping after one applica-

tion will generally result in a thin turf the next spring,

because the root system isn’t strong enough to support all the new young growth.

Always remember that the more effort you put into

understanding and preparing the soil and selecting your seed, the less effort you’ll be asking facilities managers to

put in later. That, of course, can lead to a more environmentall sound lawn, that uses less water, less fertilizer, and requires less mowing.

Business Technology

Recently, _SCAPE Magazine hosted a digital forum to discuss technology in the business of landscape architecture. Editor Adam Arvidson was joined by landscape architect Ben Sporer of Landform and LHB’s network administrator Ryan Fisher. The forum took place in a chatroom at, a social networking site for landscape architects. The group discussed videoconferencing, Deltek Vision, IM-ing, and the digital planset. _SCAPE: Thank-you for participating in the first _SCAPE Forum.

how it impacts your day-to-day activities?

scanning and digitizing old paper documents. We’re starting with desk files since we can do that in-house, but the large format stuff will

tie up our staff and hardware too much, so

we’re looking at having a third party take that on. It is super expensive, but we’d save the

money on renting storage space, and make it easier for folks to find what they’re looking for on the fly.

_SCAPE: Ryan, do you see movement towards digital plansets?

Fisher: Digital plan sets is the idea. It’s what the client and

contractors will see, but trust me, we’ll still use plenty of paper internally.

Sporer: I think everyone seems to be sending materials electronically, but they’re still printing on their own end.

_SCAPE: So we’ve talked about profitability and efficiency, but how does all this technology help produce better design?

Sporer: On the design side it allows us to get through the design process much faster, but unfortunately

that just means you go through more options. No matter the management software, we’ll

Fisher: Technology will never be able to help us avoid

Social networking burst onto the scene with websites like Myspace and Facebook, but recently a couple of landscape architects created a “lounge” for their colleagues and peers. Less than a year old and boasting more than 1500 members from across the world, land8lounge (on line at www. was gracious enough to provide _SCAPE some chat room space for its first on-line forum. Land8Lounge allows members to create a personal profile, post photos and images of their work, participate in landscape architecture-specific discussions, join groups, and make friends (after all, making on-line friends is the foundation of social networking). Current members are saying that the greatest benefits are the inspiration they gain from looking at others’ work and the ability to connect with other landscape architects in places they are visiting or to which they are moving. The site is well-organized, content-rich, and well worth a look.

taking up to the last minute on projects (unless

you set all clocks and watches backwards within a firm), and even then there are other

parties that will take their time right up until the deadline.

_SCAPE: OK, I’m going to harp on this. I asked about

better design and we got onto talking about

a faster, more efficient process. How is the actual design better?

Fisher: For our architects we’ve made a move to Revit over the past few years, and the software actually checks your work and reports inconsistencies,

produces tables on the fly, and allows a team to work in the same model all at once.

Sporer: The actual design is better because, with increased efficiency, rather than only thinking through

two options we can think through four options: theoretically producing a more thoughtful design. But of course we haven’t

begun to really discuss design technology: 3-d modeling, Revit, Sketchup, Viz…. _SCAPE: Well, until next time, then.

_SCAPE Forums We at _SCAPE Magazine hope this isn’t the last discussion forum to be organized and published here. The potential topics and formats are endless, but we’d like to know what you’re interested in. Drop a line to and tell editor Adam Arvidson what you’d like to hear some experts banter about (and what format you’d like to see us try). How about an on-line chat that you can participate in? Sit at your desk, have some lunch, answer a few e-mails, and monitor the proceedings. How about an on-site discussion? Bring a brown bag, relax under the trees, and discuss the very landscape in which you’re sitting. How about a tour? Get away for an afternoon, ride around with some experts, take lots of pictures, and get inspired. Let us know. We look forward to hearing from you.
