The Summer season is nearly upon us and we are looking for help with the upkeep of the church and school landscape.  The schedule is set up on a weekly basis running from Monday to Sunday.  Sign up early to get the week that suits you best! During your week you will be in charge of watering the plants, dead heading the flowers, and weeding the beds.  Below we have listed all the information you will need.  There will be a supply box behind the Marie Pfarr room will all the tools and supplies in it. If you have any questions or problems please call or text us, contact information is listed below. We're always availabe and live close by.  Thanks and have a great summer!

Watering and Dead Heading

*Keep in mind that we are trying to water the roots and soil below the surface and not the plant material above ground.

Corner bed - Kandel Rd parking lot

Hostas - just regular watering, do not dead head until late fall

Burning bushes - just regular watering

Front of church - beds on either side of main doors

Snowball Hydrangea - require plenty of water especially in hot weather, only prune dried flower heads in spring, do not prune stems.  These plants will wilt significantly if not watered.

Hostas - just regular watering, do not dead head until late fall

Front of church - Marie Pfarr

Hydrangeas - require plenty of water especially in hot weather, only prune dried flower heads in spring, do not prune stems. These plants will wilt significantly if not watered.

Large bed across driveway

Multiple types of hydrangeas - require plenty of water especially in hot weather, only prune dried flower heads in spring, do not prune stems.  These plants will wilt significantly if not watered.

Daylilies to line the bed - regular watering, deadhead flowers and stems in fall

Barberry bushes and boxwoods - regular watering 

Purple Iris - deadhead, pull stems in late spring once done blooming

Note: this bed is prone to a lot of thistle weeds and pinecones

Bed behind Marie Pfarr (next to AC unit)

Grasses - just light regular watering

Daylilies to line the bed - regular watering, deadhead flowers and stems in fall

Front of school office

Hydrangeas - require plenty of water especially in hot weather, only prune dried flower heads in spring, do not prune stems. These plants will wilt significantly if not watered.

Hostas - just regular watering, deadhead flower stems late fall

Garden by Cafeteria doors

Knock out Roses - significant prune in the early spring, deadhead as needed to promote continue blooming.  There are no hoses that reach these so we used buckets of water to occasionally water.

Geraniums

The geraniums are planted in mulitple locations all around the church.  They will need regular watering as they are annuals and have just been planted on June 9th. Dead Head as needed at the stem, not just the flower.  

 

Hose Locations

  1. Behind the School by prayer garden. This reel location is used for watering the bed on the front side of the school.  There is a soaker hose on this reel so you can set it up and attend to other areas.

  2. Front Sign - Pull hose from sign to water the beds near the Marie Pfarr.  A soaker hose can be attached to this reel if needed.

  3. Behind the Church  - Pull hose from this location to water the beds along the backside of the church and the new bed behind the air conditioner unit.

  4. Kandel Roadside of church toward front behind bushes - Pull hose on Kandel Road side - out to the parking lot, then it walk back towards Marie Pfarr sidewalk - hand water Geraniums, Hydrangeas, Hostas and pots in front of church and at end of sidewalk.  This hose should also be used for watering of beds along church on the Kandel Road side.

  5. I will also have 2.5 gallon jugs that can be used.

 

Weeding

Pull weeds as needed.  I will be around occassionally to spray round up.  If you are comfortable using Round Up there will be a jug in the supply box.  Please be careful if you use it, remember it will kill everything.
