Provide color and garden appeal to a city street

Landscaping in the inner city revitalizes neighborhoods and increases home values. Researchers from the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association studied the effect of a new community garden in New York City on home values in a 1000-foot ring around the garden. They found that in poor neighborhoods, after 5 years the community garden increased home values by as much as 9%.
