Don’t curb your enthusiasm

Posted on Mar 6, 2016

Planting on your own property is a given but medians and parkways contribute to your curb appeal and define the physical character of the community. They’re up front, in your face expressions of the residents. They can make a grand statement in sustainability and can be the hedgerows in our urban environment providing many benefits such as habitat for butterflies and bees. If we rethink our traditional medians as habitats, we can create corridors for insects and increase connectivity.

Adding native wildflowers (tiddy tips, goldfields and poppy) to this median in Studio City attracts pollinators, reflects the changes in the season and adds interest and texture to an otherwise boring median.
