Before the fence could be installed, the area underwent several clean-up efforts. Last summer, goats were brought in to chew and remove kudzu in an area behind Craighead-Jackson House through a grant from Keep Knoxville Beautiful. Public Service crews and AvaLawn Lawn and Landscaping completed clearing the hillside down to James White Parkway. Baseline Sports, LLC, installed the fence once the area was cleared.
