Botanical makeover

A stretch of Broad Street running through the arts district will get a beauty treatment on Oct. 21 and 23, thanks to the efforts of Venture Richmond, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, the city of Richmond and Capital One. The project, which stretches 13 blocks, will involve more than 1,200 plants, 526 bags of mulch, 460 bags of soil and 49 planters.
