Another summer goal checked off! We made the first green additions to the site. These were the toughest holes I dug over the summer! We put in some euonymus and witch hazel as border plantings to cover the chain link fence. Hopefully they will do well despite the poor soil and the heavy shade.
Today we accomplished a major goal of the group by planting and mulching in the area at the entrance of Clifton Street. After removing a dying juniper two weeks ago, there was now space for new plants. The mix of color, evergreens, and fragrances should provide a beautiful garden-like space for most of the year. This was a very successful workday to end the summer!
