The shrubs arrived yesterday. Yours truly moving a clethra shrub from the truck to the garden. The shrubs, landscaping, terrace and tree pruning were a private donation. The town paid for the new fence.
The Public Works Department provided much of the labor to plant the shrubs and water them. Volunteers have designed and will maintain the gardens. Here Lenny and Mike from the town, unload a yew shrub for the project.
The majority of the shrubs have been planted.
Four Taxus media 'Hicksii' will create a wall perpendicular to the retaining wall behind The Boccelli Garden.
Shrubs below the retaining wall. The herbaceous layer will be planted in the next two weeks.
