The Southborough Gardeners hope to make your next visit to the library a little bit prettier. The group has been working with library officials on a plan to improve landscaping at the library. They’ve offered to donate not only their time and expertise, but also money toward materials and outside labor.
“It’s a very generous gift.” Library Director Jane Cain told selectmen last week.
“The plan is to tear out materials that are overgrown and invasive, move other material, and replant and refurbish landscaping where needed,” Cain said. Work will primarily focus on the cemetery side of the library where there’s an established planting bed.
The Southborough Gardners has provided the library with a sketch of what the final landscaping might look like, but member Betty Meyer said they won’t know for sure how things will shape up until they start digging. “I think it’s a lot of ledge,” she said. “It may be a rock garden.”
Work is expected to begin as early as this week.
