New landscaping for a Walnut Grove sign

I thought you might enjoy seeing a photo of several WG Community Club members who met on Monday night to redo the landscaping around the welcome sign on the east side of town. The idea was to create a dry creek bed near the sign with plantings to compliment it. After much discussion & several suggestions, a plan took shape. We laid a dry creek bed under the sign using lots of field rocks happily donated by some area farmers. Once that was in place, clumps of perrenials were planted & mulched. Three large rocks were set in front of the sign. We thought it would be a great spot for visitors to pose for photos. As you can see, the rocks make a great stage.
