Over a few week period the Redeemer grounds have taken on a whole new look. The construction fence is down, the sidewalks have been poured, all manner of greenery has been planted, and a new lawn has been sodded and hydroseeded. Most all of the new plantings are in place with the exception of flowers. Thanks to an updated irrigation system, the new lawn is already starting to pop. The hardscape surfaces that remain are the brick pavers inside the columbarium and also leading to the prayer garden. (Note: the prayer garden is coming out of hibernation — thanks to our garden ladies — after being consumed by the construction site!)
There is still some work to be done. Benches still need to be arranged, the flag pole and front porch handrails need to be installed, as well as the exterior lamp posts that line the newly laid sidewalks. Combined with progress on exterior painting, the Redeemer exterior is finally starting to sparkle again!
