Dyke Yaxley USA Helps Beautify British Cultural Gardens

Volunteerism Highlight:

CLEVELAND, OH (August 2019) -- Team Dyke Yaxley LLC, which included all accounting professionals from both the UK and US, spent an entire July afternoon cleaning up the British Cultural Garden in Cleveland. This unique 12-acre garden, being the only one of its kind outside of England, includes many trees there were once saplings from Stratford upon Avon. 

Originally founded as the Shakespeare Garden in 1916 in honor of William Shakespeare’s tercentennial death day, the British Cultural Garden is the foremost outpost of British culture in Cleveland. In 1934, the Shakespeare Garden was formally renamed the British Garden and it became the cornerstone upon which the Cleveland Cultural Gardens were founded. A foundation has been formed to help the Daughters of the British Empire bring the garden back to a beautiful state.  Working with many volunteers that help with the gardening itself, including a landscape architect who is volunteering his time, the garden remains a beautiful piece of Cleveland history and beauty.
