In 2007 Whatcom County Public Works and the Point Roberts Garden Club joined in a cooperative effort to landscape a portion of Tyee Drive.
Flower beds were created between the existing Liquidambar trees and thousands of spring-flowering Daffodils and Bluebells were planted as well as wild flowers.
Since then we have been expanding the “mounds” and adding more plants to provide a more year-round seasonal interest once the bulbs are finished.
Over the years, the Point Roberts Garden Club has assumed the responsibility for the maintenance and improvement of this worthy project.
We do this in five ways:
1) ‘Tyee Tidy’
The Third Tuesday of every Month from 10-11am. We focus on our “Feature Berms”. All are invited.
Individuals or groups adopt a specific mound to take care of. From basic maintenance to planting new plants.
3) ‘Maintenance Team’
Volunteers who use the Club’s power equipment.
4) Hiring out for professional assistance as needed.
5) County resources when they are able to contribute.
Our Adopt-a-Mound program just started this year.
By adopting a Mound you would be contributing your own personal touch to our beautification of Tyee.
Individuals, families, groups of friends…all are invited to participate. It’s not necessary to join the Garden Club to adopt a Mound.
