2019 Initiatives 

Retaining Wall

Construction has begun on a stone retaining wall along both sides of the paver pathway leading to the wildflower gardens.  The wall will help retain the soil, which is at a slope on both sides. Once installed, there will be multiple groundcover, perennials and native grasses planted to prevent erosion, add beauty and encourage pollinators.  

 

Waterfall/Stream

The Stream and Waterfall located parallel to the south end of the Allée is scheduled for improvements.  Over the past several years, the large stones forming the edges of the pool and bridge of the headwaters at the waterfall of the stream area have been shifting.  Due to the movement of the stones water is now bypassing the original outflow. resulting in undercutting and erosion to the pathway.  To fix the problem, the large stones will be removed, the liner repositioned, and the stones reset.  

 

Meditation/Reflection Pond

The reflection/meditation pond located within the shrub garden, just west of the Edible Landscape Garden will also receive some needed improvements.  This summer the stone wall at the edge of the pond will be rebuilt, as will the steps leading to the pond.
