In 1995, funding of $900 was received from the Georgia Perennial Plant
Assoc. for development of a 280-foot long perennial garden to be installed
next to the Park driveway, which was edged with a three rail fence. Original
plans were drawn for 30-foot sections to be repeated down the length of the
border, with some small variations for existing large trees.
After significant soil improvement, the border was densely planted by Karin with
In 2000, the border was passed to the Master
Gardeners for ongoing maintenance and planting, as the border evolved into a
mix of shrubs and perennials. Some of the hardier plants originally placed
still exist, including two large Carolina Jasmine vines on the fence.
