It’s a dirty job but someone’s gotta do it

The City of Glenwood Springs landscaping crew and the Mountain Valley Greenhouse have been busy the last few weeks setting up the flower pots around downtown. The planning for this year’s planters, however, began last fall just as the other planters were being taken away. There are 64 brand new pots this year including 12 made of copper in hopes of creating a fresh look to the town—the concrete pots will stay out all year. The Glenwood Springs Downtown Authority, the Glenwood Springs Garden Club and the Day Out Downtown group were all part of the planning committee to significantly improve the appearance of downtown. The City of Glenwood Springs landscaping crew will continue to spend multiple hours a week watering and maintaining the pots.
