Beds Ready for New Plants
(June 12, 2006)
The south garden at the Steele Creek Branch Library has been
reworked and is ready for new plants. The Steele Creek Library
Association has planned, organized, and paid for much of the work.
All you can see now are beds covered with hardwood mulch and
walkways covered with cypress chips, but underneath those is a layer
of garden soil and a drip sprinkler system.
Landscaping Service prepared the beds at a reduced cost and
Blue Max Materials donated two loads of garden soil.
Childress Klein Properties, developer of RiverGate, also made a
the next few months the garden will be filled with new trees,
shrubs, and perennials. For a special project, children will plant
bulbs in the fall. The Library Association is also working on having
artwork from the old library at Steele Creek Commons Shopping Center
moved to the garden.
Donations for plants are needed.
$100 will buy a tree.
$25 will buy a bush, $10 or $15 will buy perennials. Any amount
would be welcome!
Volunteers also are needed to plant the garden. Supporters hope to
get a Garden Committee organized to keep it up.
