Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services
Edmonds Flower Program

Beautiful hanging flower baskets and corner parks bursting with color are a sure sign that spring has arrived in Edmonds. Visitors and residents look forward to the annual floral displays that herald the arrival of community fairs and festivals.

Started in the mid 1970s as part of the Street Beautification Program, the City’s floral displays benefit from Edmonds mild marine climate which suits for a broad range of ornamental plants.

The flowers selected must tolerate extreme weather conditions yet remain colorful from May to mid September. New color combinations and plant materials are developed yearly based on hardiness, ease of care, and performance. The flowers that adorn the hanging baskets and corner parks are grown from seed in City greenhouses. Hanging baskets are constructed by City staff. Two days each spring, City staff and community volunteers work together to begin planting the parks and hanging baskets.

A Little About Brad:

Local boy done good.  I have lived in the Northwest all my life.  I currenty live about a mile from where I grew up and have watched the area grow from rambling blackberry bushes to over development.  But I still live here.  It’s home.

I have been woodworking all my life and enjoy my time in the workshop.  A few years ago I wanted to learn how to weld and I attended Everett Community College on my GI Bill majoring in Welding.  Nothing made of steel has been safe since.Almost all of my projects I make are recycled material.  From the neighbors fence to stair treads from a house they were tearing down to some old tools and a discarded water heater.  Sometimes my mind is swirling with ideas… but alas…  I have to go to work and can’t build them all.I also have a VERY patient wife that lets me bring junk home.

Say Hi to Brad when you see him around town, for more information visit BradleyDRobinson.com.
