MABEN — On Feb. 11, the Maben Home and Garden Club finalized the plantings at the four-way stop on MS Highway 15 as its 50th anniversary gift to the town of Maben.

In keeping with Mississippi Department of Transportation regulations of less than 2-foot plants, the club chose to plant monkey grass and fountain grass.

The group of workers from Shuff Landscape Service — Roger Jones, Bo Bell, Charles Bell and Charles Banks — have transplanted the grasses and spread Turf & Ornamental Weed & Grass Stopper, which contains Dimension — a pre-emergent for weed control.

They then spread rotted hardwood mulch overspread with a colored pine mulch.
