ALCAZAR GARDEN


CITY OF ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA

CONDITION AND RECOMMENDATIONS


PREPARED BY HISTORIC PROPERTY ASSOCIATES

September 30, 1992



DESCRIPTION: This is a large symmetrically designed open space
immediately to the north of the Alcazar Hotel (City Hall). It is
surrounded by a series of square shell-aggregate, poured-concrete
columns which are separated by poured-concrete bollards. The
bollards rest on a low poured-concrete wall which spans the space
between the columns. An iron pipe railing joins the columns and
bollards. There is a large fish pond and associated cast-
concrete planters centered on the north/south axis.

CONDITION: The cap on the low wall shows signs of deterioration,
particularly on the west side. There are some failures of
previous patching.
The top surfaces of the square columns are eroding.
The planters around the pool exhibit some cracking and mildew.
There is considerable amount of algae and mold/mildew on the pool
bottom and center fountain.
Several small plants have begun to grow in the crack between the
pool curb and the paving.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

1. Repair cracks in wall cap utilizing an acrylic-modified
mortar. Match existing color.

2. Pool and planters Drain pool. Remove algae, mold, and
mildew with a solution in the proportions of one (1) pint of
sodium hypochlorite (household bleach), one (1) cup of trisodium
phosphate (such as Spic & Span), and one (1) gallon of clean
water. Apply with soft natural bristle brushes. Flush with
copious amounts of clean water.

3. Apply herbicide to cracks between the pool curb and the
paving.
