Description from Featured Neighbor: Terri Parkin
This is a garden I planted in late spring. There is an array of colorful zinnias, a wonderful mix of cascade wildflowers, poppies, giant sunflowers, and nasturtiums. I brought in premium soil and had it spread for this garden which is the ultimate cause of its success this year plus consistent watering in the morning and evening. I planted just wildflowers last year, but the soil wasn’t as rich as this and so I had a much happier experience this year.
“The new construction video includes more views from the deck of the Tree walk. The rails and the stainless steel cap on the railing are being installed and polished. Soon the electricians will come in and install lighting. The structure is very aesthetically pleasing.
In the landscape, the secondary paths are taking shape and the irrigation systems are nearing completion in the Gathering Green and Pollinator Garden areas. The Arbor framework is assembled and next steps include pouring of the Terrace and setting the fire feature. I hope you enjoy the views. I am astonished that this has been the 11th construction video. Time has flown by.
I hope you are safe and well, andI look forward to the day I can greet you in the Garden again.”
Exciting happenings at Leach Botanical Garden as the aerial tree walk takes shape! Please note, the pedestrian bridge is down and garden visitors can cross the creek to the stone cabin. The route is one way, signs mark the route to follow.
