Landscape Workday: April 27th

We planted and we celebrated at our workday at Longcommon and Kent Roads on Saturday, April 27th. Sixteen volunteers and village staff worked with Village Forster, Michael Collins and noted plant expert, Roy Diblik.

We are participating in an experiment to see if sedges can replace mulch in
beds under our trees. We planted 820 Penn or Common Oak and Carex Albicans sedge plugs with 9 Virginia Blue Bells to add a touch of color. All of the plants were donated by Midwest Ground Covers.

A Bur Oak was planted to celebrate Arbor Day and Green Oak Leaf Cupcakes helped us celebrate Olmsted’s birthday. We finished just in time for the rain and snow to water our new plants.
