FPC Garden Care 2021

Listed below are the various gardens on our church property including the directions for summer volunteer maintenance.  

In addition, please weed between the sidewalks and the roadway in all garden areas that has curbing.  Picking up trash all around our property is always needed and appreciated.

Main entrance gardens:  This area consists of the small rectangular garden area off the parking lot and both sides of the main entrance sidewalk.  Weekly weeding is necessary as well as a deep watering every other day. Please be sure to deadhead all flowering plants and trim all plants as necessary to keep the gardens looking tidy.  Keep the sidewalk clear of debris with your broom.  Remember to turn off the hose at the spigot completely after use.  Please contact Doreen Duncan with any questions.

Peace Garden:  Please water the Clematis vine, all the Hellebores, and the new plantings of Vinca vine weekly but all other plantings are established and do not need watering.  Weekly weeding is needed in all shrub beds and in the stone areas of the cross and under the brass plaques.  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.  The spigot and a hose are 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 weekly weeding in the stone area and the beds.  Keep the pathway clear of stones and other debris with 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 weekly.  The shrubs are established and will not need watering but there are several perennial plants in this area and they require a deep watering every other day.  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 Deb Mohollen with any questions.

Corner Parking Lot Area/Evans Street side:  This area includes the entire corner of shrub/tree beds and the small rectangular area with new plantings of Knock Out roses.  These rose bushes will require weekly watering.  Weekly weeding is needed.  The shrubs and trees are established in this area and will not require watering.  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 they do not need watering.  Weekly weeding is necessary and be sure to pay attention to the weeds growing between the juniper evergreens on the hillside and the stone areas under the windows on the building. Keep the bed trenches weed free.  Please contact Tom or Judy Babbony with any questions.
