This was our garden group’s 2013 beautification project. The original wooden retaining walls had rotted away and were in danger of collapsing. With the help of a Beautification Grant from the City of Kawartha Lakes, and under the direction of Garden Chairs Joanne Windrem and Aron Muscutt, we had the old wooden wall removed and replaced with beautiful armour stone. New soil, new better suited plants, a little mulch and the bed was like new! The placing of the fireman’s boots and a decorative cement plaque with the fireman’s crest put the finishing touches on this beautiful bed.
