Posted on 05/01/2016

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.

Every plant will have its own water source. GAC’s well provides a steady supply.
