Wilkins House updates


Some good progress with the Wilkins House "Save-not-Raze" project. The lot next door has been acquired at the city forfeiture sale and will now provide a larger yard as well as opportunity to build a new garage

Volunteers have been working on additional front landscaping. The land has been leveled in that area and it was mulched and some new plants installed, more plantings will be taking place in that bed,

At the same time, Work is a starting on the side yard which had been seriously eroded. Some stone was set to make some small retaining planting bed walls and the area is being terraced. This are is laregly shaded and most likely will be ideal for future planting of a Hosta garden, once exterior painting is complete
