Morrisburg and Iroquois will get new welcome gardens this fall.
South Dundas council awarded the tender to Create It! Garden Design and Installation at their last regular council meeting.
The cost for the design and installation work is $5,550.
The welcome garden in Iroquois will be located on the island in front of the Iroquois Plaza near the buoys.
The Morrisburg welcome garden will be located on the south-west side of the intersection of County Roads 2 and 31.
The design phase of the gardens is now underway. “The gardens are being designed to be visually appealing year round,” said South Dundas economic development officer Nicole Sullivan.
The actual planting is expected to take place in early September.
These welcome gardens came about as a result of directions outlined in the community strategic plan, which specifically mentioned beautification projects such as this one to enhance community gateways.
