Flower bed coming to Lawton Drive

Posted: May 21, 2013 - 10:19pm  |  Updated: May 22, 2013 - 9:45pm

The row of dirt sitting in the vacant lot along Lawton Drive in Kenai will, come late July, sprout wild flowers and grass once the city levels and sprays it with hydroseed, City Manager Rick Koch said.

“It was just a handy place to haul some material to,” Koch said, “and I knew there was a vacant spot where a couple of homes had an unobstructed view of the highway and Walmart.”

The project will cost about $15,000, he said, mostly for the hydroseed, a nutritionally rich mixture of fertilizer, mulch and seed commonly sprayed on new lawns or banks of fresh roads.

The mound of dirt came from the Kenai Central High School track and field upgrades.

In the next three weeks, the city will begin shaping and leveling the dirt, Koch said.
