The University of Georgia State Botanical Garden has hired a designer and a construction manager for the future Alice H. Richards Children’s Garden.
Plans for the children’s garden will be led by Koons Environmental Design, of Athens. Allstate Construction, of Perry, will oversee a superintendent based in Athens for the project. Both companies have had a successful history in working with UGA on other projects. Jennifer Cruse-Sanders, Director at the State Botanical Gardens of Georgia, explained that the companies will help to carry out initial designs for the garden.
