Jeffrey Fontana Park’s Memorial Rose Garden gets a makeover

Thanks to the Santa Clara County Association of Realtors (SCCAOR), The Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS), Martin-Fontana Parks Association members, and other volunteers, a lot was done on Sat the 7th.  We dead-headed the roses; fertilized all the plants, pulled weeds, trimmed the curbs, and spread 6 yards of mulch.  A long pole tree trimmer was used to open up the flowering plums in the project. All in all, we got a ton of stuff done; and the garden looks great! Take a look.

We are set for the Fall/Winter and will do our first 2014 workday in the Spring ’14… maybe early April. Then we will spread another 6 yards of chips and repeat what we did today.  This should give us one great Spring to look forward to.

    We had some real talent amongst that group! A couple of rose specialists did the dead heading and spread the rose fertilizer. Thanks to Sunny Wagstaff to use that long-pole tree-trimmer to good use! We moved 6 yards of mulch in record time. The garden really does look fine. We will have to let the Fontana Family know to come by and visit the memorial… I know they will appreciate the care and attention the SCCAOR is giving the rose garden!
