Beautification & Landscaping

The Golden Triangle BID devotes many hours beautifying the neighborhood, including maintaining parks, painting light poles, emptying trash cans, and watering plants.

Each spring, the Golden Triangle adds color to the streets by hanging flower baskets in Farragut Park and Murrow Park. Flowers are planted in Duke Ellington Park on New Hampshire Avenue, and the rain gardens along 19th Street and M Street are weeded, mulched, and trimmed. The Connecticut Avenue Median is planted throughout the year with seasonally-themed flowers and greenery, making a powerful statement alongside the light art.

More than 19,000 annuals and perennials are planted throughout the BID each year, including 36 hanging flower baskets in various parks. Additionally, the streets of the Golden Triangle burst with yellow when building owners plant thousands of golden flowers each spring and fall in the tree gardens outside their buildings. The stunning flowers geographically brand the BID’s streets, while adding unmistakable flare.
