As you walk along the perimeter of the hospital grounds, you will notice lovely Yew (Taxus baccata) hedges that create a smooth green wall and careful camouflage, masking the current hospital construction site. This evergreen hedge is hardy in shade or sun, and is being strategically placed along Sand Point Way to provide some plant interest as the project continues. This planting is part of the hospital’s commitment to the neighborhood to minimize the visual impact of the construction effort for those who live in the surrounding area, and will become part of the finished landscape once construction has subsided.
