Village Project HQ undergoes outdoor transformation
As Aristotle observed, “In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.” Everyone knows that the aesthetic beauty of flowers and plants is soothing and healing and elevates the mood of the beholder.
The Village Project’s headquarters in Bay Village recently became a grateful recipient of just such an uplifting gift, courtesy of Maple Leaf Landscaping – lovely, bright, outdoor plantings of mums and other seasonal plants which surround the building on West Oviatt Road.
Julia Shutt of Maple Leaf Landscaping said that her goal with the design was to create a “season of bloom,” with colorful, low maintenance plants that will provide color and bloom in spring, as well as fall.
“I think that when people see color in the garden, it makes them smile and feel joy," Shutt said. "We live and work in this community, and we like to give back. When we see the completed garden, it makes us feel good. It brings a smile to our own faces.”
The plants and materials, valued at over $3,000, were donated by Landmark Lawn and Garden Supply, Cahoon Nursery, and Sunbeam Gardens as well as Maple Leaf Landscaping. The Village Project would like to offer heartfelt thanks to all of these businesses for this joyful gift.
