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.

The colour in the city’s roundabouts can now be appreciated. the Ring road is a blaze of colour with each roundabout themed so that each is a unique experience. Roundabouts are also signed to aid orientation. the ring road forms a green parkway extending from the Waterford rd to the Castlecomer road. sections of the ring road have also been planted with wild flowers. The extensive city pedestrian and cycle way network has been completed along much of the route.
The roundabout planting also includes trees and permanent planting to provide colour through out the year. Extensive tree planting has taken place all along the city Ring road, providing screening and cover.
