Glenmont Forest Green Streets - Project Designs, Maps & Plans

 


DEP has been working with the community and contract engineers since 2014 to bring Green Streets to the Glenmont Forest and Wheaton Hills area. The plan began with 158 proposed projects in the community, however due to site constraints, restrictions from utilities or lack of infiltration or soil permeability many of the projects had to be dropped, or modified to fit into the site requirements. Currently, there are over 60 projects planned in the area. This page provides maps for residents to locate individual projects, design plans and the landscape plan for the area.

Utilizing years of professional experience installing projects in other neighborhoods, in the field observations, and pulling together landscape architects and other experts, the Glenmont Forest and Wheaton Hills landscape plan has been developed based on the following criteria:

  • Tried and tested true native plants
  • Overall and Seasonal Aesthetics
  • Salt tolerance
  • Drought tolerance
  • Appropriate size and spacing
  • Deer Resistance

Our goal is always to select plants that are: “The right plant for the right space”


The Pollinator Meadow Rain Garden

The pollinator meadow rain garden is a meadow like garden designed to naturally filter stormwater and provide habitat for pollinators like butterflies and hummingbirds. In the early spring you will first see a punch of yellow cheer as the golden groundsel emerges from the ground. As summer approaches, blue flag iris takes the stage and dwarf joe pye weed will offer fragrant, mauve flowers to the delight of our pollinators. In the fall, dwarf aromatic asters put on a lavender display while providing one of the few fall nectar sources for monarches and other butterflies. Switchgrass fills out the garden, offering a changing backdrop throughout the year. Keep an eye out, particularly in fall as this upright grass turns a crimson red.

Residents within the Glenmont Forest project area can also help reduce stormwater pollution by installing stormwater practices on their property through the county's RainScapes Rebates Program.
