West Garden Wall Update

Filed under: News — by west104garden @ 3:55 pm

Hi all–

Finally, contractors have started work to rebuild a retaining wall in the West garden. The crew did a near job of removing and saving most all the bed planks; moved the spruce tree and rose bush from the Memorial Bed to other side of arbor; put up a large sign explaining what’s being done and why inside the gate so passersby would know what’s happening;; and are cleaning up as they go –sweeping the sidewalk, etc. They’re installed a double-wide gate in the fence to allow for equipment ins and outs; a Parks rep is onsite all day; and Frank has been over to speak with them — the same men our Steering Cte.,Jean and myself met with twice prior to work starting.
The work, weather permitting, should take 3 to 31/2 weeks, due to the snows delay last week, sorry.

REMINDER: We are not allowed entry to this West site during construction, please.
There are No Parking signs up and cars will be moved out if any one parks there during construction, alternate days or not.
Gardeners with beds in the East garden are free to do their Spring prep/planting however.

All for now — Lucille
