The Edward Everett Square Project beautified this crossroads with eight flower beds covering a total of 3,500 square feet. The City of Boston Parks Department planted twenty young American Elms in these beds and laid down mulch, but the task of further landscaping is left to the community. It is the community goal to design and construct floral landscaping of the highest aesthetic quality consonant with the demands of a busy urban intersection.

With support from the City of Boston Grassroots Open Space Program and the Waste Management Corporation, the community committee selected SiteCreative Landscape Architecture to develop a planting design. SiteCreative developed a plan appropriate for an urban landscape with plants that are robust and provide four-season interest: St. Johnswort, Goldflame Spiraea, Sargent Juniper, Coneflower, Yellow Tickseed, Happy Return Daylilies and Daffodils. Safety was a crucial consideration, and plants were chosen to enable clear views to traffic and pedestrians. The ValleyCrest Landscape Development company was selected to plant the shrubs and perennials in the fall of 2008.

Maintenance is provided by R&R Landscape Co. of Dorchester with generous funding support from Waste Management Corporation.

Trimount Ironworks of Humphreys Street fabricated and installed fence edging with support from the City of Boston Edward Ingersoll Browne Fund.
