Green Surrounding & Keep Putnam Beautiful, Beautifying the Road in Southeast

Porfirio Reyes and Miguel Perez planting annuals for Keep Putnam Beautiful

The hillside at the intersection of NYS Routes 6 and 312 is getting a facelift. Green Surrounding, a Brewster-based landscaping company, has volunteered to partner with Keep Putnam Beautiful to improve the hillside at one of the busiest intersections in Putnam County. Each workday, an average of nearly 15,000 cars pass by.

The NYS Dept. of Transportation granted a permit for the hillside beautification project with support from the Town of Southeast, and planting guidelines were reviewed by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Putnam County. Dr. Ralph Rudolph from Rudolph Gardens in Carmel donated and installed some of the perennial plants, and the Brennan Construction Company from Prospect Hill Road in Brewster donated generously toward the annuals. Mr. Kevin Palmer, Highway Superintendent, and the Town of Southeast Highway Department are assisting with the watering.

For more information and to donate plants or funds please contact Green Surrounding at mybotanica@aol.com or call 845.279.1408.
