I passed this tree pit on Madison Avenue and love the classic idea of the Boxwood around the edge of the planting bed. The English garden undertones contrasts well with the harsh concrete sidewalks. We are installing a similar planting on a rooftop garden in May.
Until then, enjoy this springtime tree pit planting also on the upper east side. Lots of color and flowers are mixed together to give this tree pit a breath of life. Did you know that tree grates are no longer legal in NYC? Plants are a much better alternative.
