What is Upcoming?
The Boulevard Garden Program is planning to expand to gardening on centre medians. The Centre Median Gardens Pilot is going to council December 2022. For more information visit the engage page.
We appreciate the care that homeowners and renters take in maintaining the boulevards adjacent to their homes. You may also garden on your boulevard if you read the Boulevard Garden Guidelines and complete the Boulevard Garden Agreement below.
What is a Boulevard Garden?
Boulevard gardens are public, City-owned spaces between the sidewalk and street curb (see #1 in the above figure) that are planted and maintained by residents. Boulevard Gardens can grow food and community, add beauty to neighbourhoods, provide habitat, and help manage storm water. Gardens on centre medians (#2 above) are not currently permitted.
Please note that the City of Saskatoon and utility providers may require occasional access to the boulevard to maintain underground utilities, build or repair sidewalks, install street signage, access hydrants, or prune street trees. This could mean that plants or other garden features may be removed or damaged.
For your own and others’ safety, please Call Before You Dig (1-866-828-4888) to confirm the location of underground utilities before getting started.
Before installing a boulevard garden, please fill out the City of Saskatoon’s Boulevard Garden Agreement. This information will be used to track the number of boulevard gardens that are enriching our city.
