Berm Replanting

From the Grounds Committee

The Berm area at the southern end of Watergate is in terrible condition. The shrubs in the center no longer provide any barrier to the parking area for the office building beyond. Other Hollies on the Berm were removed or damaged by garage waterproofing work several years ago. The Crape Myrtle at the eastern end of the property does not get enough sun, and the Dogwood at the western end of the Berm gets too much sun. Consequently, both trees are failing and need to be replaced.

Since we had a very good experience with Hybla Valley Nursery in the replanting of the trees and shrubs by the retaining wall along the fishpond walkway, we asked them to provide a proposal to Watergate to replace the existing 12 Hollies, Crape Myrtle, and Dogwood.

Dogwoods thrive in shady spaces, and the new one would be planted in the sitting area in front of 978 North Royal Street.  The replacement Crape Myrtle would replace the Dogwood on the western end of the Berm. The all-in cost of Hybla Valley's proposal for the planting of the shrubs, trees, labor and warranty is $5,265.   The removal of the shrubs and trees by another firm used by Hybla would add an additional estimated cost of $1,400.
