Revitalizing the Labyrinth Gardens

The intention for this year is to revitalize the gardens at the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth. They were originally designed and planted in 2011. And fourteen years later the gardens surrounding the labyrinth are no longer in good shape. They are overgrown, weedy, need edging and mulch, and more.
There is currently not an active committee looking after the labyrinth, the Town of Carleton Place cuts the grass but does not tend the gardens. The idea is to have a master gardener help provide some plant replacement ideas. Once there is a plan and when we secure some funding, a gardener and crew will help to do a one-time clean up of the beds.
We had a good start with a Hosta planting party at the labyrinth last week. A small group of former Labyrinth committee members, with the help of a Carleton Place and Districut Horticultural Society member, planted several dozen Hostas under the spruce trees bordering the Labyrinth.
All who come to walk the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth comment on the peace and tranquility they find at this special place. We are very hopeful that the beauty of the gardens will soon be restored.
