Spring Cutback: Preparing the Park’s Landscape for a New Season

Enlarge

The High Line's plants are not trimmed back at the onset of cold weather in the fall. Instead they are left intact to provide structure, beauty, and habitat throughout the winter. That means when spring arrives, we work quickly to cut back the High Line’s more than 100,000 plants make way for fresh green growth.

With generous support from Google, REI, and Toyota, hundreds of volunteers help us get the job done. In March, High Line Gardeners work side-by-side with students, neighbors, and friends to ready the landscape for the upcoming growing season.

Stay up-to-date on the progress. Follow @highlinenyc on Twitter for photos from the field, or visit the High Line Blog for weekly updates.
