Hello everyone, we hope that you are all having a good and warm winter. It has been a while since we updated our blog so we would like to share with you our latest project. For the last couple weeks, we have been focusing on the redevelopment of the Commandant’s House garden located at the Boston National Historical Part. The first part of the project which was to come up with a new design for the garden was done by Melissa. This new design proposed some new plants and some that are already planted in the garden.
Here are a few photos of new plants that Melissa has incorporated in the design:
After the design was done, we started researching the plants that have been proposed for the new garden. Some of these plants includes: Yucca, Forsythia, drift roses, limelight hydrangea, alpine Jupiter and a few more. The purpose of our research was to find out if the plants proposed will be suitable to the garden. We took into consideration, the hardiness of the plants, their maintenance requirements and the diseases that they might be vulnerable to. After our research, we met and presented our findings to Melissa who discussed with us the reasoning behind her choice of plants. This research and our meeting with Melissa were very educative to us. In the upcoming weeks, we will keep you informed on the final design of the garden. We would like to thank Melissa for taking the time to meet with us and we wish all of you a happy February.
Here are a few current photos of the garden we took:
