The Garnetwood Flowerbed Project started in April 2005. We worked on it from then til 2008. It became somewhat overgrown and unruly this past year, so in September 2012 it was decided by the Garnetwood Park Gardener and myself that we needed to re design the bed. We began with the center. this is a short video of the creation of that new center bed.
My involvement has always been as a volunteer/taxpayer and a landscape design consultant. It just annoyed me to see this beautiful park bed being neglected, so I became involved.
This year, we lost our long-time Park Gardener because she wanted to move on to other projects. Our new park Gardener is a sweetie but is horribly over burdened with dealing with all the sports fields in her assorted parks as well as trying to care for the various flower beds.
She was also overwhelmed by this 2500 square foot bed, in it's overgrown and tangled state. I was able to reassure her that it wouldn't be too awful to fix up and we discussed a strategy and began to work on it.
