• Your sidewalk is lovely. I wonder if metro blooms can provide a reasonable solution to the city?
    We need pollinator flowers throughout the season. We need to educate those who do not appreciate the benefits to themselves of boulevard gardens like yours.

    We enjoy reading your posts. The pictures of your garden are wonderful, and we are sure your garden looks even more wonderful to see it in person! I wish we were neighbors so we could enjoy seeing such beauty all the time. We are sorry that you had to receive such a notice from the city – You should instead have received a letter telling you how beautiful your garden is! We will look forward to seeing more pictures of your landscaping in the future.

    Great article, and much more measured and reasonable than I would have felt. I’ve actually gotten several letters from the city because my lilac hedge is sometimes an entire two inches over the sidewalk, which I guess impedes the walking of people who are seven feet wide. I appreciate rules, too, but sometimes it feels the city regulators are just trying to justify their jobs, or maybe they have a quota?

    So sorry to hear you have an unruly garden.
    Keep up the good work you radical gardener and lover of nature.

  • Hi there. Just putting my link list together (your on) since I’ve moved to the far west metro. In NYC, I was never cited by the city, and much like you, several neighbors cherished the garden. But there is that one in ten curmudgeon that just can’t stand it. They’re out there, and they probably live nearby, and they complained. But not to you, of course. Not sure what it is exactly, but where we see beauty, they see a mess. Good luck!
