I should also explain to everyone that in the first picture above, you'll notice curb cuts on the sidewalk side of the planters.
I'll be explaining this more on RTH, but these are bioswale planters. Not only do they bring greenery to urban streetscapes, but they are designed to divert storm water from the sewer system into these planters. Hamilton should be all over this idea given our flooding issues and our lack of street trees on so many lower city streets.
