Downtown Northampton Planters

Commissioned by the Downtown Northampton Association (DNA), we designed a combination of high-impact annuals to line the medians in the center of town.  

 

In accordance with their goals of beautifying downtown and making Northampton a premier cultural and economic destination, the design adds vibrant color and shapes to Main and King Streets.  

Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School Forestry/Horticulture program supplied the containers, soil mix, and planted the design. The DNA has been tending these plants, living surrounded by hot asphalt and through a droughty summer.
