Project Profile:

Walter P. Chrysler Museum

Project Summary

There are approximately four installations at Chrysler and the Museum is one of them. Michigan had low rainfall in Summer of 2002. This site was typical of many lawns where irrigation hadn’t been used. Normally there would be enough rain to keep vegetation green. Should grasses not recover, then a reseeding with top dressing or hydroseeding would be necessary. Replenishing micronutrients would also be a good idea.
