Haven’t you heard? It is written in stone. Your name that is, at least, it could be. Mark your spot at Clark Gardens Botanical Park with a custom engraved paver.
For just $200 a custom paver could be engraved for you. The pavers will be placed among the arbor, which is the gateway into the stunning 35-acre botanical park.
Originally paved with bricks 22 years ago, wear and tear from harsh Texas weather conditions has taken a toll on the arbor. Winter Storm Uri 2021 was the final straw that caused many bricks to crumble to dust. In Clark Gardens’ upcoming renovation the busted bricks will be replaced with concrete pavers, a much sturdier material for outdoor conditions. Around 5,000 square feet will be replaced, costing $72,000.
As a non-profit, Clark Gardens needs the communities help to complete this beautification project. Not only is the brick arbor currently an aesthetic issue, but it could quickly escalade into a safety issue.
Whether it is a family name, in memory of a loved one, an anniversary gift, or a company’s shout out, make sure to reserve your paver quickly – as a limited number are available.
To allow for proper funding and installation, Clark Gardens’ goal is to replace the bricks no later than the winter months of 2023. Engraved paver orders must be submitted by January 10, 2023.
When visiting with Director, Carol Clark Montgomery, she stated “the old saying, ‘it takes a village,’ certainly applies to maintaining our beloved 35-acre garden.” Montgomery then went on to explain “there are several ways you can help”. If an engraved paver is not of interest or out of budget, all monetary donations are greatly appreciated.
