PORTSMOUTH — When the people at the Cross Roads House decided to hire Site Structures Landscape, Inc. during their renovations five years ago they probably had no idea what they were going to get for their money.

They paid Site Structures to do the original work, but since then the Eliot, Maine company has been maintaining the grounds free of charge and last week it was there for an annual makeover.

“We're very, very appreciative of the support we receive from Site Structures,” said Martha Stone, executive director at Cross Roads House. “We've had the privilege of working with them ever since they did our renovations five years ago.”

Site Structures donated 20 cubic yards of mulch last Wednesday and three workers throughout the week to help spread it, do general grounds clean-up, pruning and weeding. The local landscaping company also donated equipment and gardening supplies for both their workers doing the landscaping and for volunteers from Liberty Mutual who were helping to spruce up the Portsmouth family shelter both inside and out.
