The Vestavia Hills Beautification Board held a Fall Gardening Seminar at Andy's Garden Center November 5th. The professionals at Andy's presented container gardening techniques including: selecting the proper plant varieties for a sunny or shady location; the best soil and fertilizing materials to use; as well as watering techniques. Andrew Sweeney and Jason Sumners of Andy's demonstrated how to create and freshen containers while answering questions from those attending. The Beautification Board sponsored a drawing for a $50 Andy's Git Certificate that was given away at the conclusion of the presentation. Mrs. Frances Byrd was the lucky winner of the drawing. Thank you Tricia Burris and Andy's for hosting this fun and informative seminar. Pictures from the event are below.
Each year, during the Spring and Christmas Seasons, beautification board members hold yard judging. Yards are judged on how well they are maintained and in appearance. During the Christmas Season, yards are judged on their appearance during the day and night.
Here are pictures of some of our 2015 Christmas Yard Winners
We love that some of our Spring Winners had a little fun with their Winner's sign.
