DeFranco Landscaping recently replanted the allee of trees between Fort Ticonderoga and the King’s Garden. The staff at DeFrancos removed the sod and renovated the planting bed prior to planting the 50 Karpick Red Maples. The King’s Garden opens for the season on June 1. Above, Dave DeFranco of DeFranco Landscaping waters a maple with Heidi Karkoski, Fort Ticonderoga curator of landscape, looking on. DeFranco Landscaping, based in Hague, was the recipient of the 2010 Frank Leonbruno Memorial Lake Stewardship Award from the Lake George Watershed Coalition for use of native plants in their landscape design.
