A weekend planting team enhanced the landscape on our canine campus!
Thanks to a GAC donor, landscape designer Laura Eubanks and her husband Greg Eubanks arrived at GAC with two dozen drought-tolerant plants to fill up the hill next to the outdoor condos.
Owners of Design for Serenity, Laura and Greg laid out the best plan to help shade the dogs from the hot summer sun. Small shrubs will quickly grow to cover the hillside.
This part of the campus needed a facelift!
Volunteer gardeners included (front) Francie Murphy, Darren Rigg, Donna Tierney, Rick Mitchell, (back) Wallace Gavett and Pat Tierney.
Darren Rigg battled the rock-hard clay soil.
GAC’s Max kept a keen eye on the workers.
The Tierneys came well supplied with shovels.
Every plant will have its own water source. GAC’s well provides a steady supply.
GAC’s Corvette loves his new view. Up next — weed cloth and mulch. A big thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard this weekend! We need folks with all sorts of skills so consider signing up to volunteer today.
