Pickens Master Gardeners get their yardwork on at the Pickens County Extension Office.
"I think we've widened the road several feet," joked one Pickens Master Garderner who, along with employees of the Pickens County Extension Office spent Wednesday morning pruning overgrown rosmeary and rose bushes
that had gotten so big they often brushed passing cars. The group also transplanted border grass and did other landscaping maintenance at the depot in downtown Jasper.
Extension agents said next on the list for the old building - if supplies, manpower and funding can be secured - is painting the depot and replacing the roof.
