Farragut Square Getting Some TLC

Preparing Farragut Square for new sodTuesday morning, as I was walking to work, I noticed that large swaths of grass were being scrapped up in Farragut Square. At the time, I thought maybe the workers were creating new planting beds for flowers and shrubs.

I contacted Dr. Ximena Hartsock, the new Director of Parks and Recs, to see if she could shed some light on what was going on. What I found out, and would have if Resodding Farragut SquareI’d only waited a day, is that the party responsible for the work is actually the National Park Service, and what they are doing is resodding areas that are clearly worn.

It looks like there is still a lot of work to do, but for now, it appears that they are doing sections of the park at a time. If you walk through the park you’ll notice areas that have been roped off.

  1. I hope they put some topsoil in underneath. Sod is tricky, and needs to be constantly watered and exposed to permeable soil underneath.
