Landscape shaping up at W-W schools complex



If you’ve ridden by the Washington-Wilkes Middle School and W-W Comprehensive High School complex during the past week, you have probably noticed a lot of improvements on the grounds. More trees have been planted and there’s been grading, grassing, and mulching in the front to produce more grass and decrease the erosion and other issues with the Georgia red mud. “The Wilkes County School system is excited to get this much needed and long-desired work started,” Superintendent Dr. Rosemary Caddell said. “We would like to thank Moon’s Tree Farm for the donation of trees and the City of Washington for planting the trees and having the Fire Department assist with the watering. “We would also like to thank Jimmy Wheatley and JEBCO Services, Inc. for the expert grading, seeding, and mulching in the front, Wilkes County Board of Commissioners for the donation of topsoil, Trey Anderson for the mulch, Burdette Mill and Gin, Inc. for the seed and fertilizer, the City of Washington for clearing the mud and debris from the roadways, and Barnett Southern, Inc. and Ricky and Penny Callaway for their donations to complete the islands in front of the schools. It really looks great!” If you’ve ridden by the Washington-Wilkes Middle School and W-W Comprehensive High School complex during the past week, you have probably noticed a lot of improvements on the grounds.
