Horticulture and Grounds Division

The Horticulture and Grounds Division is responsible for the care and maintenance of our trees, shrubs, perennial and annual plantings throughout the City.  They manage the hanging basket and streetscape programs, as well as the tree programs.  In 2019, the Horticulture and Grounds Division assumed the responsibility of the 100 Block Streetscape and the downtown hanging basket management.   

We are dedicated to creating beautiful places that add to the livability of Council Bluffs.  Over the next couple of years we will be making a concerted effort to increase the number of streetscapes, plant more trees with fall color, and enhance our existing medians and gateways into Council Bluffs.

Have a question about the planting you see, or would you like to recommend we add planting to a location within a park, let us know.
