WPGC Landscapes Central Library


Club Members, Girl Scout Troop 953, & Friends landscape Central Library

Project Update - The highlight of the 2010 year was completing phase I of a huge project: landscaping the entrance to Central Library. With the old overgrown junipers removed one year ago, this barren space was crying for a make-over. There were no County funds available to improve the entrance, so our garden club took up the challenge to raise funds and coordinate the planting.

On April 10, 2010 Cadette Girl Scout Troop 953 joined our club members, their husbands, and friends to make a combined force of 27! This made easy work of the 13 hot pink Knock-Out Roses, Adagio grass, coreopsis, daylilies and variegated liriope going into the sunny semi-circular garden in the drive up, as well as the pink-flowered hellebores and ferns in the shade garden by the book drop. These gardens support National Garden Clubs "Plant it Pink" initiative to promote breast cancer awareness.

The funds for this project were provided by our garden club and a grant from the Piedmont District of the Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs.

Phase II of this landscape project is actually larger; it includes the 2 side planting bed at the entrance and is scheduled for planting Autumn 2010. Photos of the day’s accomplishments were generously provided by Andre Tremper, and can be viewed at http://actremper.phanfare.com/4631887#imageID=97135316
