Maple Grove Spruces Up Roundabout

Roundabout cropped (D Payne)Thanks to the generosity of more than 100 neighbors, the Emory Village roundabout was transformed in late April with the installation of five mature maples and other plantings–just in time for the 2016 Druid Hills Tour of Homes and Gardens.

EVA member and former chair Todd Hill created the  landscaping plan for the center of the roundabout after collecting feedback from the various community, business and Emory constituencies represented on the Board as well as Georgia Power Company. The new roundabout grove features five mature Acer Japonicum ‘Aconitfolum’ (maples) which will grow compactly and provide vivid color in the fall.  Shrubs, perennials, and annuals complement the trees.

The roundabout was built in 2012 during the Village streetscaping and traffic-calming project.  Landscaping  the popular traffic circle has been high on the list of EVA’s long-term plan for revitalizing the Village, says EVA Chair David Payne.

“I want to thank a few people who have worked very hard in the last couple of weeks to ensure this landscaping occurred. First, Todd for putting the plan together and acting as the primary point of contact with Rupert Landscaping – they came through – thanks Todd!   Second, to Jimmy Powell from Emory who worked to make sure the irrigation was flowing properly after it was fixed (all during Jimmy’s busiest time of the year – pre-Commencement).

“Finally, I thank Bill Gryboski for not only single-handedly raising the majority of the money for the landscaping, but then working with plumbers, electricians and landscapers to make sure that pumps were working and that sprinklers were functional.   Bill worked every day for the last two weeks (and hour by hour several days) to make sure we have irrigation for the new landscaping – big thanks for his dedication!”

A special thanks to the donors who financed about 64% of the EVA-led project.  Donating is easy –and still welcome!! Just click  on the Donate button on the top of this page. If you prefer to make your gift by check (payable to Emory Village Alliance), mail it to Emory Village Alliance, PO Box 15185, Atlanta GA 30333. Donations are tax deductible.


BEFORE: Built in 2012 with the intention to eventually relandscape it when funds became available, the Emory Village roundabout includes an irrigation system fed by a well in Emory Village Plaza.
INSTALLATION: Workers from Rupert Landscaping carefully lowered the five mature maples into place.


AFTER: The new maple trees, shrubs, and flowers promise to provide an attractive palette  in the roundabout year around.
