Two rock gardens now featured in Southwood Park

September 28, 2009

About two weeks ago, Beautification Committee members took two hours on a Wednesday and installed two rock gardens. The Association paid for the plant material and the boulders were donated.Tacoma rock

The larger stone on Tacoma Avenue is a limestone slab from the southern part of the state. It is near Pettit Avenue and takes the place of the hawthorn tree that was a victim of last year’s ice storm. When you go by, feel free to take a rest. The slab was picked for its dual purpose ability to serve as a natural bench.

On South Wayne Avenue at Pettit Avenue, South Wayne rockwe added an Indiana granite field stone with interesting textures. There are new varieties of lamb’s ear, daylilies, ornamental grass and a flowering shrub.

As always, if you have a notion for some “sanctioned guerilla gardening”, contact Pat Thomson. She’ll get you hooked up with our neighborhood gardening efforts.
