Garden Path Engraved Flagstones
Generously sized flagstones, with your name, your business, or a quotation that inspires you can be enscribed on these large stones that provide a path through the Demonstration Garden. These stones are a wonderful opportunity to leave a truly lasting legacy or memorial. Price for an enscribed flagstone is $1500. You choose what goes on the stone.
What better way to marry our library and our hardscaping than
with these bookcace stones resting on steel shelves. Benefactors may enscribe
their names, their company names, or the names of loved ones on these
beautiful, truly long-last "books." Celebrate your love of books and gardens
at the same time. These are very popular and we purchased a number of them
to act. Still available at $300 per stone.
Help "Grow" the New Arboreta Gardens: Sponsor Trees, Shrubs, and Art
We are now developing the new gardens on the north side of the Library called The Arboreta. There remain many opportunities to support this major new garden effort by purchasing a tree for the garden and we are now fundraising in preparation for additional plantings. Tree purchases may range between $250-$500 depending on the size and nature of the tree.
If you interests lean more toward art you can also purchase one of our beautiful decorative metal panels. Our metalsmith will produce an image on the panel from your design or we can put you in touch with an artist who has designed several of these panels already. Decorative metal panels, seen pictured below, with your name attributed will cost $2500. You can also purchase a metal plaque with your name on it as a contributor to the gardens for $1,000.
