Description: Located in the heart of Madison, Wisconsin, this four story building has a unique urban street presence. McKay worked with the both the tenant and building owner to develop a landscape concept that relies on a variety of drought tolerant, low maintenance and native species that will stand the test of time.
In addition to design and City approvals, the McKay team installed a mix of annual and perennial plantings on the 4th floor green roof. Upon installation, a duck took up residence in one of the newly planted areas. After her eggs hatched and the ducklings were on the move, the Nordic team worked diligently to relocate the family safely through the building and to their new waterfront home. Watch their journey here.
