CAMP RAPID LANDSCAPE & IRRIGATION ASSESSMENT
SD NATIONAL GUARD
Stanley Design Group was retained by the South Dakota Army National Guard to complete an irrigation and landscape assessment for Camp Rapid, located in Rapid City. The assessment was conducted because portions of the existing plantings were either dead, removed, or not performing as anticipated. Turf condition was also included in the assessment. Our design staff took soil samples and gave recommendations that would enhance the existing turf’s performance. Turf recommendations also included determining areas that should be irrigated and areas that should remain non-irrigated.
In addition to the evaluation and recommendations to the Camp’s plantings, portions of the irrigation system have either exceeded their useful life, do not perform as anticipated, or need to be expanded. The goal of this project was to create a master plan that would be utilized for planning and implementing planting standards, planting areas, irrigation design, and maintenance standards.
