Terrace Garden Pond Gets Spring Cleaning

Posted by on May 11 2009 | Other

At the end of April we drained and cleaned the pond in the Terrace Garden.  It was a big process that involved several days of hard labor and the removal of a lot of muck.  Thanks to Eastman House Gardeners, Andy and Dan, the pond is now sparkling.
