See Ryan Walling’s Eagle Scout Project: A Rowlett PD Landscape Makeover!

Ryan Walling, who is heading into his freshman year at Sachse High, recently completed his Troop 57 Eagle Scout Project and we couldn’t be prouder of him! His project was to dig up and make over the front landscape for the Rowlett Police Department, and he did an amazing job. He started by clearing out the existing plants, and tilling in 3 cubic yards of compost to enrich and help break up the soil. He planted a combination of Dwarf Yaupon Hollies, Furman’s Red Autumn Sage, Variegated Yucca, Radiance Abelias, and 2 Hetzi Columnar Junipers as focal pieces flanking the main entrance. The hollies will eventually grow up to 4 feet tall, and are very easy to manicure, as are the abelias. The Autumn Sage with provide a cherry red contrast to other shrubs, and will attract beautiful pollinators, while the yuccas offer brightness and texture. The junipers will reach about 15 feet tall and provide a stately entryway for years to come. The entire Covington’s staff wishes to congratulate Ryan Walling and his family and friends on taking on such a selfless, ambitious project benefitting Rowlett’s first responders. Ryan is an exceptional young man who we know will go on to do great things with his life! Check out the slide show below!
