Hanging Baskets

Since 2005, Laurel Foundation has been the sole sponsor of Downtown Pittsburgh’s hanging flower baskets, providing color, vibrancy and a touch of nature for the enjoyment of residents, workers and visitors. Thanks to the Foundation, the Conservancy is able to hang more than 400 flower baskets, beautifying bridges and major streets of the Golden Triangle.  Laurel Foundation’s investment in Downtown Pittsburgh has spurred other neighborhoods to also partner with WPC to provide flower baskets in their own commercial corridors. 

Laurel Foundation supported hanging flower baskets

A high-impact form of streetscape greening, particularly in places without a lot of ground space, hanging baskets add a touch of color and signal a community that cares about its environment. If your community is interested in partnering with the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy to place baskets along your main street(s), or to inquire about funding options, please contact Arthur DeMeo, director of community greenspace services, at 412-586-2346 or ademeo@paconserve.org.
