Landscape Plan Contest

Andover Historical invites entries for a landscape plan for the grounds around 97 Main Street, Andover, Mass.

The goal of the contest is a plan for an attractive and low maintenance landscape that includes salt and drought resistant plants in areas that abut the street, walkways, and driveway. Ideas to consider include pollinator gardens, local and native species, and educational opportunities. The Blanchard House at 97 Main Street has a long history of residents and uses from 1820 to today. The intent is to create a landscape that honors the history of the property while reflecting current use as a busy open downtown space.

Design must include a planting layout, list of plant materials, estimated cost of materials, and cost of labor. Presentations must be submitted mounted on poster board and electronically as a PDF. The contest is open to all, including students. There is no fee to enter. The winner will receive a beautiful native New England plant. The winning design will become the property of Andover Historical Society.
