Bastrop In Bloom

Have you seen the new planters downtown?

Bastrop In Bloom is a new Downtown beautification initiative of the Bastrop Main Street Program. The Main Street Advisory Board's Design Committee spearheaded the placement of eleven (11) planters along Main Street. The planters, purchased from Earth Planter ®, are self-watering which means the plants only have to be watered once every two weeks. Each planter has a water reservoir where wicks self-regulate water delivery. The controlled release of water provides superior bottom feedings while eliminating root rot issues from oversaturation.
