Zim Boulos and OES (Office Environments and Services) donated the garden to the Chazan-Gabbard family.  The garden was designed by landscape architect Scott Dowman and was installed by Al Thigpen Landscaping, Inc.

In the center of the ring a Persian Lime Tree. August’s ashes were mixed with the roots. Sean McNeil and David Byers helped plant it.

The butterfly garden plants “Ann Marie” Lantana, Trailing Rosemary, Milkweed, Cardinal Guard, and Porterweed.
