Sevierville Parks and Recreation Department employees have been busy placing new hanging pots and ground planters in the downtown area as part of the Downtown Streetscape Project.
Fifty-four new poles were placed downtown, and each has a new hanging basket with self-watering technology. These baskets are expected to save approximately $6,700 annually in labor and materials costs.
All of the flowers used in the baskets and planters were grown by the Parks and Recreation Department in greenhouses located at City Park. Along with the ground planters, the hanging baskets will provide beautiful flowers downtown from April to October each year.
