Boys & Girls Club of Kingman gets a Desert Garden

We had a great planting day over at The Boys & Girls Club of Kingman last week!

The club, although occupying a beautiful historic building, was surrounded by concrete and bare dirt. They were really in need of a green space and an opportunity for the children to enjoy a little bit of nature while visiting after school and over the summer.

We started by covering the beds with clear plastic sheeting and solarizing the soil to rid the beds of weeds and pests.

After about a month we were ready to get our shovels into the soil and prepare the                                                beds for a variety of desert shrubs, trees and flowers.

The marketing team here at Star Nursery made fast work of digging holes for the new garden.

Once all the larger plants were in he ground we invited the kids to come out and get their hands dirty. 
They each were able to plant their very own addition to the garden; a red salvia.

Papilio polyxenes

It didn't take long to see that our efforts had paid off. We had visitors from nature as soon as we had put the last plant in place.
