On Friday, July 20th, a contractor will start clearing under growth in preparation of planting new garden beds along the Hospital’s South Access Drive beginning at the Bellevue Dr. cul-de-sac. These are the plantings that were discussed and agreed upon during a special HPNHHIC meeting on March 29. It is anticipated that the clearing and plant bed preparation will take two days. During this phase of the operation, the metal fence south of the snow storage pavement area will also be removed. Upon completion of the clearing and bed preparation, the contractor will start planting new ornamental and evergreen trees, deciduous and evergreen shrubs, and perennials and ground covers. It is anticipated that this phase of work will take another 5 days.
