Over the past few weeks, scouts from Piedmont Boy Scouts Troop 15 helped Eagle Scout candidate Nathan Catalano install Trex edging along the sidewalk on Hiller to retain the soil from the Firestorm Memorial Garden. As part of his project, Nate had to measure sections to determine how much Trex was needed.  Using donated Trex and rebar, Nate’s team of scouts dug a narrow trench along the sidewalk, installed the 5 ½ inch Trex using 12” rebar to hold it in place. They repurposed scalloped concrete edging around the benches to complete the clean look.  Now, when Bentley students return to school in the fall, they won’t have to worry about dirt spilling on to sidewalk that they use for morning drop off and afternoon pick up.
