Excerpt from The Landscape Improvement of Rural School Grounds
The following bulletin, written at our request by Profesor J. W. Gregg of the University of California, with the addition of lists of trees, shrubs and owers, suitable for school grounds, furnished by Assistant Professor Ralph T. Stevens, and Miss K. D. Jones, while designed to meet some of the immediate and pressing needs of our schools, has elements of permanent value. It, therefore, should not only receive careful consideration now, but be kept for future reference and study whenever the planning or planting of school grounds is to be undertaken.
The detailed plans for grounds are sufficiently numerous and varied to be distinctly helpful to any district where the school grounds are ample enough to admit of landscape treatment. Grounds of such amplitude are of course desirable for every school. It is not always feasible to provide them in large cities, but there is no suburban or rural district in California that can not have them if only there be a' resolute and an intelligently directed effort to do so. In districts where the present population is too small to provide or to maintain such grounds, the desired ends can be obtained by judicious consolida tion Of neighboring schools. Such consolidation would result in a triple benefit, for not only could the school grounds be enlarged and beauti fied, but the school buildings could be made more spacious, and more convenient, while the courses of instruction, made more numerous and more varied, could be carried on under better conditions.
