Beautification Committee Updates

The beautification committees is responsible for planting and weeding the urns on the north side of 1st Avenue, the gardens at Race Circle and 3rd and Race, and the borders in front of the walls on High, Gilpin and Franklin Streets. All the annuals will be planted in the coming weeks and will be a mix of hardy species in colors to attract desirable pollinators!

New hedges of Green Velvet boxwood were planted earlier this month at the corners of Gaylord and Race, and will provide a more well-defined entrance into the neighborhood.

Xavier Banuelos and his crew have been doing the planting and maintenance for the past five years. Denver Parks & Recreation is responsible for mowing, wee control, watering and tree care in all of our medians. The committee works closely with the city to keep our landscapes attractive and healthy year round.
