Volunteers treated local flower beds to some spring cleaning and care last week.
Clarkston Beautification Committee members cleared weeds from flower beds at Main and Washington streets downtown. Friends of Depot Park organized a volunteer effort to tend to flower beds along Depot Road.
Flowers and labor were all donated, about $1,000 each, by Breckenridge Gardens, Distinctive Landscape, Essential Outdoor Services, Lowrie’s Landscape, and Zaremba and Company, said Tom Lowrie of Friends of Depot Park.
“I reached out to local contractors to tend to five raised gardens along Depot Road in Depot Park – none of them said no,” said Lowrie, founder and former owner of Lowrie’s Landscape.
