White Heron Award October 2016

Marathon Garden Club’s Great White Heron Award Goes To Wolfe Center/Bonefish Storage

Congratulations to Karen and John Wolfe and their children Joy and Alex, recipients of the Garden Club’s GREAT WHITE HERON AWARD which is given to local businesses that enhance and improve the street appeal of their property. Their business is located at 12703 Overseas Highway in Marathon. The traveling award focuses on property owners who have beautified the landscape along US Route 1, a national scenic highway.

When the Wolfe family purchased the property in 1998, the front of the building had minimal landscaping consisting of large rocks on pea gravel and an 18th century cannon. Now, existing objects and rocks have been placed in an undulating line which permits the viewer to see the design in its entirety. The large variegated leaves of the agave century plant give impact to the center. Smaller bromeliads of green and red provide contrast. The entire landscape is healthy and nourished by rain. No irrigation is needed!

Congratulations from the Marathon Garden Club to the Wolfes for adding to the beauty of our community.
