NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Hillsboro Village Merchants are adopting sixteen tree planting beds along 21st Avenue in the historic Hillsboro Village as a community enhancement project. This project adds a finishing touch to the sidewalk renovation project, completed in September of this year which included the expansion of the linear planting beds to benefit existing healthy trees.
The merchants’ involvement includes a planting day and a two-year commitment to water the plants and keep the weeds and trash out of the beds. Each merchant will get to choose from a pallet of perennials which will add not only evergreen plants for year round effect but flowering plants for seasonal highlights.
“Great things continue to happen with Hillsboro Village businesses working together with the city to make improvements for all of our customers and the neighborhood” notes Kim Totzke, Chair of the Village Merchants Association. Totzke is the Director of Operations for Provence Breads and Cafe, located in the center of this three block specialty business district.
Jennifer Smith of the Public Works Landscape Coordination Program views this project as “what can happen throughout the city where partnerships are formed to add value to the community in not only planting plants but in the important watering and care that plants require.” As part of this partnership, Nashville’s Public Works Department is providing the perennial plants.
“Landscape elements create a sense of place helping to draw people for dining, shopping and entertainment. The quality landscape reflects the quality of service and products the Village merchants provide customers” said Smith.
Gary Hawkins of Hawkins Partners helped facilitate this partnership by bringing together Councilwoman Burkley Allen, the Village Merchant Association and Public Works. “This project is a fitting culmination to a very successful streetscape enhancement project that benefits everyone who lives, shops and works in this vibrant and unique regional destination” added Hawkins, a landscape architect and a neighbor of the Village.
