“a beautiful place to rest and enjoy nature”

In 1979 a group of visionary individuals developed a plan to revitalize the dying downtown area.  This plan included renovation of the centrally located Federal Post Office to accommodate a restaurant which was to be surrounded by gardens and seating areas.  These ventures were funded by private individuals and managed by the Chamber of Commerce.  Don McEneny was hired to design, plant, and maintain the gardens.  After Don’s death in 1985, Susan Regan acquired the job of managing the Fayetteville Downtown Square Gardens. The square continues to be managed by the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.  Three full-time horticulturist design, plant and maintain the beds.  The beds contain a wide variety of perennials including some native plants.  Tropical plants and annuals are used to enhance the beds.  Most of the plants are grown from seeds and plugs at the greenhouse located on Mt.Sequoyah. The soil mix for the beds are made with one-third sifted topsoil, one-third field sand and one-third compost.  Three different types of mulch are used; City of Fayetteville mulch, pinebark mulch and grade A cedar mulch.
