Alexandria, VA – Have you stopped to admire the radiant flower baskets hanging from the lamp posts on King Street lately? Each basket is positively bursting with small white and pink flowers, and lush green leaves.

Our experience at Zebra with taking care of flower baskets ranges from none to a less than spectacular outcome. So who are the unsung heroes with the magical green thumbs that keep the baskets looking so lush?

The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities installed, and supervises the maintenance of the hanging flower baskets on King Street, which run from the waterfront to Commonwealth Ave. The baskets were made by Greenstreet Growers, and the early birds over at BrightView Landscaping Services start watering them at 4 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with a 500-gallon watering truck and telescopic wands.

What dedication!

Next time you find yourself strolling on King Street, don’t forget to take a moment out of your busy day to appreciate the hanging flower baskets.
