The colder winter days brings new work for our many residents associations with the cleaning of planted areas. Beds where possible have a variety of sustainable plants that give colour all year round. These need to be weeded, the plants trimmed back, or in many cases divided and replanted elsewhere. Some winter colour is add with primroses and violas. The robin, a gardeners friend in the winter stands by, ready to pick up any tasty morsels which remain after the work.
Our city has had many creative and fantastic murals. These are generally commissioned for specific locations by Kilkenny Co Co, local businesses and voluntary groups and also by Keep Kilkenny Beautiful. Repairs and cleaning of important murals is also undertake as required. This work in conjunction with a “spray it over” and “clean it off” policy has meant that Kilkenny has a very low level of graffitti through out our city.
