U City in Bloom is a non-profit beautification effort for the St. Louis neighborhood, University City. Through community involvement and engagement they have greatly improved the beauty of local street corners, schools and parks.
Their bi-annual Fall Garden Tour was a great hit this year, with absolutely perfect weather, a great turnout and a great selection of gardens showcasing University City’s historic residential areas.
Quiet Village Landscaping was happy to participate, by offering garden tips and advice at featured garden #7 in the historic Parkview neighborhood, where we interviewed Horticultural Director for U City in Bloom, Jesse Gilbertson who gave a great insight into the organization and a unique Bonsai Garden from the tour.
