The Nettleton Hollow Association, which serves the town of Washington, has been keeping an active schedule.

The non-profit, neighborhood association founded in the early 1970s has re-landscaped the corner of Nettleton Hollow and Washington roads in Woodbury, the southern entrance to Nettleton Hollow -- a scenic and historic area of Washington and Woodbury -- and part of the Pomperaug Watershed, after AT & T put in about a half dozen switching boxes a few years ago.

Nettleton Hollow is home to the Hollister House Garden, the John Dorr Nature Lab, Steep Rock's West Mountain Preserve, and many historic homes and gardens.

The NHA landscaping project is the second attempt at covering about a half dozen telephone switching boxes, and has cost about $9,000 so far.

The project is spearheaded by board members Colin Knudsen, James Orsi, Jayne Bentzen and Joe Mustich.

Landscape architect Dirk Sabin of Washington worked on the first project and Garden Paws of Bethlehem worked on the current one.
