FAIRFIELD PLAZA (continuing)
Avon Garden Club has undertaken a project to revitalize and refurbish the landscaping on Fairfield Plaza.  The garden club developed a gardening plan for the plaza with the guidance of local experts and members of the club.  The basic landscape design remains the same but struggling shrubs were replaced with drought tolerant, low maintenance plants and grassy areas will be refurbished to provide a welcome play area for family fun.
