Bluegrass Airport Mural

 

A 300’ long by 30’ tall retaining wall for the Blue Grass Airport was constructed as a part of a Runway Safety Zone Expansion and is located along historic Versailles Road in Lexington, in close proximity to Keeneland Race Course. An unconventional landscape plan was developed to preserve the viewshed of the historic corridor while also meeting the strict requirements for landscape development around airports.  The landscape mural creates a background that traditional stone Ha-ha walls, large earthen berms and bronze horse sculptures emerge from as a reflection of the Kentucky landscape.
