First Presbyterian Church Pottstown PA
Here are instructions for summer gardening maintenance:
Main entrance gardens: This area consists of the 3 small areas off the parking lot and main entrance sidewalk. Please keep all 3 areas weeded. A frequent deep watering of these areas will be necessary … at least 3 times a week during the hot summer days, without rain. Please keep sidewalk clear of debris with broom or hose. Remember to turn off the hose at the spigot completely after use. Please contact Doreen Duncan with any questions.
Peace Garden: The main job is weeding and making sure the area is free of trash and debris. Water the clematis vine weekly but all other plantings are established and do not need watering. If the pump in the fountain is not running, it may need more water at the bottom. If this happens, please fill the basin and bottom fountain, unplug the pump and plug it in again. If it is still not working, call Sue Moyer. A spigot is located at the main entrance garden and under the large stained glass window on the Franklin Street side of the church. Please contact Sue Moyer or Dee Phillips with any questions.
Labyrinth: The shrubs and grasses are established in this area and do not require watering. The main job here is weeding. Please keep the pathway clear of stones and other debris – you will need to bring your own broom. Please contact Chuck Krueger with any questions.
Franklin Street Area: This area is located all across the front of the church under the large stained glass window on the Franklin Street side. Weeding will need to be done regularly in this area. The shrubs are established and will not need watering. There are several perennial plants in this area and they require a frequent deep watering ... at least 3 times a week during the hot summer days, without rain. There is a spigot and hose located to the left of the large stained glass window. Please remember to turn this hose off at the spigot upon use. Please contact Linda Waterbury with any questions.
Corner Parking Lot Area: This area also includes the small rectangular bed off the sidewalk on Evans Street. The shrubs and trees are established in this area and will not require watering. Weeding needs to be done on a regular basis. Please contact Mary Ellen Urquhart with any questions.
Evans Street Area: This includes everything on the Evans Street side except what is included in the Corner Parking Lot Area. Shrubs are established so no watering is necessary. Keeping the weeds under control is the job in this area. Please be sure to pay attention to the weeds growing between the juniper evergreens on the hillside. Please contact Tom or Judy Babbony with any questions.
