Our project was to help transform the courtyard landscaping at the Gwinnett Extended Care facility in Lawrenceville. We assisted with tilling and de-weeding the beds around the perimeter of the courtyard, to make healthy planting areas for a new herb and vegetable garden. We also planted some berry bushes and olive trees. We turned the soil with top soil and other nutrients during the preparation phase. Once all the plantings were in, we covered and mulched the beds, and gave them all a good watering.
It was such a beautiful day for this kind of work, and the facility residents were so happy to see the new courtyard plantings. They also enjoy bird watching and they have many butterfly bushes so they can enjoy the variety of butterflies in the area.
Just a wonderful day, doing good deeds for some very special people. Many thanks to Mary Jane O’Neal for organizing the event for the firm, and to Tom Tate, Melanie O’Dowd, Jenn Leyes, Vea Scollan, Liz Clack-Freeman, Tyler Dillard, and Gray Brantley for putting so much hard work in!
