If anyone would like to help with the planting and bed creation, the boys should be digging around 2:30PM.
I could also use someone with a digital camera that can capture some pictures.
I spoke with Aaron Burke and Doug Cook and between the donated excavating equipment from Jay Ramsey at Farm Creek Landscaping, labor and equipment from Grimes Landscape and Hydroseeding, the design work and tree donation from Doug Cook at Landesgn.biz, Corliss Wholesale donating plant material along with all of your donations we will be planting today!

Doug Cook, collaborator and designer on the GMG Tree project has recently redesigned his website.
I’ve seen what I thought was some creative landscaping, but never before have I seen it done and at the same time have such a stunning visual impact while blending in to the natural surroundings and environs.
So check it out and see some of his incredible work on some of the finest homes on Cape Ann by clicking this link

If anyone wants to get a kick ass used fooseball table and contribute to an awesome cause where you can see the results every day, a $20 donation to the GMG Tree project gets you this fooseball table.
Please click on the picture and select “all sizes” option to see the plan in full size and greater clarity with the names of all the plantings.
We are a bit away from the costs of getting the project done but I’m confident that some of the folks that dig the site will step up. So far Doug figures we have enough to cover the costs of the plants and trees (thanks to the donation of a Tree and Doug’s services along with Aaron Burke’s pledge of a backhoe and labor. Now we just need enough to cover the cost of the mulch, loam and a few shrubs.

Aaron just informed me that he is going to help with the plantings and has more exciting news from Corliss Brothers possibly donating to the cause also!
Yesterday morning I went over with Doug Cook to survey the site for our tree project. Doug is calling Dig Safe and checking with the City engineers as far as any easements. Doug has some exciting plans which we will put up for everyone to see here.
Good Eggs- Doug Cook is a good egg. Not only is he going to offer his Landscaping expertise consulting for the type of trees and land preparation, but he is also going to donate a tree for the GMG Tree Project! I couldn’t be more excited and happy to have Doug aboard the GMG team.
Check out Doug’s website which is in the process of being updated www.ladesign.biz
