Phoenix Transect Project

PROJECT: The Manicured City


If you are looking for it you will have no problem finding it. Itís all around the greater Phoenix Valley, as odd as it may seem. Homeowners use it to seek out beautification or perhaps attention, business owners looking for a way to deter from the straight and boring lines of their establishment. Vegetation is more abundant than you would consider in Metropolitan Phoenix.

However, the vegetation I would like you to take note is not the typical desert sampling, because Arizona is not all dirt and cacti. Phoenix is full of unexpected greenery; some of it having to be tamed, some of it well planned out in advance, and some of it just existing in a space all of its own.
