Waterscape team creates creek

As part of this year’s Filberg Festival, David Bossom of Island Waterscape and Leana Richardson of the Plant Collector were asked to create a garden and stream for this year’s festival.

A CREEK created by Island Waterscape and the Plant Collector for the Filberg Festival will remain at Filberg Park until the beginning of October.

As part of this year’s Filberg Festival, David Bossom of Island Waterscape and Leana Richardson of the Plant Collector were asked to create a garden and stream for this year’s festival.

With their combined talents, the Island Waterscape team created a 25-foot creek, Richardson’s nursery selected and provided the plant material, and collectively, they put the garden together.

With the additional plant support from Valley Succulents, the team was able to create a crevice garden featuring succulents and cacti for our area.

The garden and stream were so well-received by the public, Island Waterscape and the Plant Collector have arranged with the Filberg board of directors to leave the stream and garden until the beginning of October for their continued enjoyment of the visitors to the park.

The Filberg Park is open daily from 8 a.m. to dusk and admission is free.
