Overlea Excited About Our Planters!

Overlea is fortunate to have multiple large-scale stone flower planters that run along Belair Road from Fleetwood Avenue all the way down near Willow Avenue. Some of these planters have been adopted and maintained by local businesses, while others have remained empty for many seasons. This weekend, five of the planters were adopted by three very generous local residents eager to beautify this very visible portion of Belair Road. They took it upon themselves to purchase 5 hibiscus trees, 10 geraniums, 10 sweet potato vines, numerous marigolds and 2 bags of mulch to enliven these planters. These folks also engaged the local business owners in this strip by asking them to maintain and help to water these planters. All three establishments agreed.
A big thank you to Joanne (another Overlea resident) at Maryland Flower and Foliage Company in White Marsh, for her expert advice and discount pricing!
If you happen to walk past these planters please assist the effort by removing any debris which may have collected. Picking up trash, even if it’s not in your own yard, is never a wasted endeavor.
