Dear PoPville – Tree Box Gardens Vol. 13


“Dear PoPville,

So after reading all the do’s and don’t’s about what can go in a planter box in a previous post about “no dog poop” signs I was surprised to see these ones on G St NE that are loaded up to the brim with plants. There are beautiful trimmed black pines, pomegranate trees, pepper plants, etc and the boxes go a good ways down the whole block between 7th and 8th. They’re really cool, so I’m definitely not complaining, just wondering if they got some sort of exemption from the city or if it’s actually possible to do this?”
