Renovation of a very visible location
This garden in the Town of Queensbury was pretty dismal. Touted by the original designers and installers
as a planting that would provide color and interest through the year -it did neither. Both residents
and Town officials were dismayed at the results.
In 2005 colleague and friend Greg
Greene and myself(with the support of then town councilman Roger Boor) volunteered to renovate the garden.
We removed all of the original plantings and replaced them with a variety of perennials and shrubs. What a difference!
We are still fine tuning the garden adding spring flowering bulbs and more perennials but the result is a much more interesting
garden. Greg and I and the rest of the volunteers: Friends of Hovey Pond maintain the garden on a regular basis.
