Diggin’ in to his work

Carter Tower is working his way through downtown Trail this summer, helping his dad, Sierra Landscaping owner Allen Tower (back), plant 27 drought resistant trees and 1450 sustainable plants and ornamental grasses as part of Phase 2 of Trail’s revitalization plan. The 14-year old was patting down topsoil after planting a drought resistant Syringa (lilac) tree in front of the Victoria Street parking lot Thursday afternoon. The new landscape is watered through subsurface irrigation, which is an efficient method that allows water to drop slowly to the roots of the plants and reduces surface run off. - Sheri Regnier
