More Landscaping at Centennial Farm
No, we are not going into the landscaping business, but recently we offered our assistance to the Recreation Department, to beautify the entrance to the Recreation Building. Over the years the GINLC has helped with many projects at Centennial Farm including the planting of trees and bushes, so this latest project is just an extension of our contributions there. Although gardening is never totally maintenance free, we intend to keep the work load as simple as possible. Four Planter barrels have been ordered through our local Hardware Store and plants will be purchased from Westcroft Garden. Many things need to be taken into consideration when planning something that will look good year round, but still be simple. We need to consider the amount of sun, just afternoon sun in this case, and different maintenance issues to avoid, like seeds or the attraction of deer. We intend to plant tall Sedum in the barrels and Lavender around large, decorative rocks. It is hoped, that by Earth Day most of the work will be done and you’ll be able to admire it this summer.
