FALLBROOK – Last fall Phyllis Sweeney, special projects manager of the Fallbrook Senior Center, asked the Fallbrook Garden Club for assistance in re-landscaping the front entrance by replacing the grass with drought tolerant plants.

There were many challenges to consider before new plantings and mulch could be installed. These included developing a design, removing diseased trees, eliminating the Bermuda grass, gopher control, and replacing existing irrigation with low water usage lines.

A number of individuals and businesses volunteered to assist with donations of money, materials and/or labor in what became a true community project. Contributors included Sweet Serenity Landscape Design, Tierra del Verde Arbor Care, Rees Agricultural Services, Fowler Pest Control, Grangetto’s Farm & Garden Supply, Concepts in Landscaping.

All involved look forward to the array of color the plants will provide, welcoming all to the Fallbrook Senior Center.
