BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - We are so excited to add six hanging baskets filled with flowers to line the Springfield Avenue business district, for a total of 14 baskets this year.
The Fill-a-Basket program is a collaboration among the Downtown Beautification Committee and Berkeley Heights Business and Civic community, which created and manages the program and raised the funds to buy the baskets, generous local businesses who pay for the plantings, Hall’s Garden Center who installs the baskets and plants and the Berkeley Heights DPW. DPW staff will handle watering duties again this year.
“Last year’s pilot program was very well received. So, this year we’re able increase the number of flower baskets mounted on lampposts downtown and make an even bigger impact. We’re so grateful to the businesses, who are stepping up to ensure residents and visitors will enjoy a noticeably enhanced streetscape,” said Julie Lloyd, chair of the Downtown Beautification Committee.
The baskets are initially planted with flowers and greenery that lasts through the summer. After the first frost, the baskets will be filled with seasonal greenery.
