Boxwoods replaced

Along with the renovation projects under way on the Rotunda terraces will come some new landscaping. Because the large American boxwoods on the University Avenue side of the Rotunda, planted there in 1959, have suffered storm damage and been weakened by utility work in the area, they were to be removed this week. They will be replaced this fall with English boxwoods, which will be easier to maintain at a lower height and provide a better view of the historic building. The project will also include replanting the side slopes with a low-growing groundcover, a change prompted by safety concerns with mowing grass on such steep grades.
