Eagle Scout Project at A Wider Circle (Part 2)

As the day progressed, you can see that we were able to keep some of the plants and bushes.  Simply weeding gave the area a whole new look!


We not only weeded, but removed all of the dirt from the edge of he garden and on he parking lot.  Most of it was filled with oil and other vehicle fluids. 



You can see the large number of lawn debris bags.   I guess there were about 20 bags debris removed.

Eagle Scout Project at A Wider Circle (Part 1)

Our first Eagle Scout Project of the year, consisted of reworking the grassy area by the parking lot/retaining wall at A Wider Circle.     It had become overgrown.  The objective was to have the area look neat, clean and professional, as their clients would go into the business area.  

Here are some photos from the morning:

We started at apx. 9am slowly cleaning out the weeds which had overtaken the area



Landscaping had been done a long time ago, as were pulling these large stones from under the bushes and weeds.
