Hello, landscape and garden enthusiasts!
The landscape crew is working apace to keep things weeded and planted and generally spruced up.
Our goal is to eventually have no “open” ground. We have quite a few open areas that are currently covered with nothing but mulch, and as great as the mulch is for the soil, it is also a perfect spot for weed growth. In order to reduce our weeding time, we are looking to plant groundcovers and other plants to reduce the surface area as much as possible.
So over the next few months, we hope to be adding beautiful groundcovers to the landscape to beautify and reduce the workload. Eventually, we would like to replace the open grass areas with gardens but that project is down the road a bit! We are always looking for donated plants.
In the meantime, we will be adding plants to the beds in front of the building to enhance our welcoming entrance. If you are interested in talking with me further or have questions or better yet, suggestions, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Or even better, come volunteer with our landscape group on the first and third Saturdays of the month, 8-10 am.
