Green streetscapes

There are few things as inspiring to watch as an asphalt streetscape transforms into a green and lush space. Plantings captivate the imagination and excite the senses.

 

What is more welcoming than the beauty of decorated traffic islands and street containers bursting with texture and color? TheDCH strives to increase dynamic green areas. We have found this is a wonderful way to increase civic pride and build community investment. 

 

Not only do people enjoy the plantings, but they also provide natural habitat for our urban dwelling birds and pollinators, bringing a piece of the rural life right to our backyards. If you are interested in getting involved, read more about our opportunities for green streetscape sponsorship.

 

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

 

Designing, planting, and maintaining public landscapes at prominent intersections and community gateways is one exciting way TheDCH contributes to making Wilmington a greener healthier city. Area corporations and communities wishing to heighten the beauty of their neighborhoods sponsor the installation and maintenance of these plantings. Each is distinguished by their environmental sustainability and unique suitability for their urban context.

 

For more information on sponsoring a public landscape enhancement, contact Ann Mattingly, Director of Programs.
