GBCC Gardens Receive a Facelift

By GBCC Gardener, Mary Lemens

There have been lots of changes to our entrance to the Sports Center. Last fall we added boulders and different elevations at the gates. We loaded the area with compost and then had to call it a season. This spring I installed some shrubs, weeping larches and an assortment of brightly colored perennials. I'm excited to watch it bloom out this year and see how it comes together!

A second face lift at the Main Clubhouse is still in progress. The sod was removed from the flag area in the front of the clubhouse and boulders placed. Truckloads of compost were tilled in and a Korean pine (a personal favorite of mine) was planted as well as some carpet roses and barberry. More shrubs and flowers will be planted as soon as the path through is complete. 

Our superintendent pitched in to help us get the curve in the path just right. Ben is a hands-on boss and is very involved in making sure everything is just right in all of the club's outdoor areas.

I hope you enjoy watching the progress unfold in all the gardens this year!
