Landscape Committee

The Landscape Committee is responsible for maintaining and improving the FPS landscaping, including the Memorial Garden. In addition to performing landscape maintenance, his group addresses drainage concerns, stonework, wall and path construction, and selecting and installing plant materials. It also contracts and oversees lawn mowing and maintenance.

The Landscape Committee has the responsibility for the “memorializing” aspects of the Memorial Garden, including interfacing with plant donors, planting and maintaining donated plants, maintaining records in the Memorial Book, supporting memorial services and weddings in the Memorial Garden, and managing the Memorial Garden Fund. With the Minister, members assist people in planning ahead for their own Memorial Service and their own Memorial Book page.

  • You will learn a lot about the many aspects of landscaping from members of our committee.
  • You will get a lot of immediate gratification from your efforts.
  • Landscape projects are great multi-generational opportunities. Families are welcome!
  • Many hands really do make lighter work!
