Bloom Blast in Downtown Lenoir

Bloom blast plants

Public Works staff spruced up Downtown Lenoir this past Friday with hundreds of fresh, colorful plants and flowers.

Three Public Works staff planted more than 350 plants and flowers in 21 planter boxes in downtown. Each planter has nine to a dozen new plants that will fill out in the next month or so.

"The Cemeteries Division takes a lot of pride in planting these flowers in the planter boxes each year," Public Works Director Jared Wright said. "Plants are typically selected and ordered several months in advance, and they only use plants that are hearty and well-suited to these growing conditions. When the planter boxes are in full bloom, this really adds a great deal of texture and color to our downtown.”

The planter boxes were built nearly 20 years ago during the downtown streetscape project that started around 2002 and finished in 2006. The streetscape project included construction of the square with decorative sidewalks, street pavers, signal poles, two-way traffic conversion and the urban plaza.

Thank you to Public Works for helping keep the City clean and beautiful.
