Spring Cutback is in Full Swing


Stop by the High Line in the coming weeks, and you will find a remarkable transformation underway.

High Line Gardeners are busily working with more than 300 community volunteers to complete High Line Spring Cutback – our biggest horticultural task of the year. The High Line’s plants are not trimmed back at the onset of the cold weather, as is typical in most gardens. Instead, the wild grasses, skeletal plant stalks, and dried seed heads define the High Line’s winter landscape. Now that spring has arrived, we must work quickly to cut back the plants to make way for new growth.
