Improvements on The Japanese Garden at the Horticulture Complex


Horticulture Technology students have been busy refurbishing and augmenting the plantings in the Japanese Garden located behind the Horticulture Technology greenhouse. Donations made by the Haywood Master Gardener Volunteer Association and the Waynesville Garden Club in the 2009-2010 academic year allowed the improvements, giving the students experience in pond construction while enhancing the educational capacity of the garden in terms of increased botanical diversity. Students in the spring semester Landscape Management I class removed the stone coping from around the old pond, replaced the leaky liner, and added a new pump and filter system. This semester, students in the Landscape Design I course have added new plantings including such specimen plants as Cornus kousa ‘Wolf Eyes’ (a variegated dogwood native to Japan, China and Korea), and Cryptomeria japonica ‘Black Dragon’ (a dwarf Japanese cedar). Students will continue to make improvements on the garden throughout the semester, and the garden should be ready for full display by the spring.
