WELCOME TO KIM’S GARDEN - A Project of Friends of Kim Brenegar

Kim Brenegar, a Capitol Hill resident and owner of the Washington, D.C. landscaping business “The Ornamental Garden,” died in a car accident in 2009 at the age of 49. The Friends of Kim Brenegar formed in 2010 to create a living legacy in honor of Kim’s love of community and the environment. We chose the renovation of a small public park just steps from Kim’s home, where for many years she had volunteered her talents and plant materials to maintain the garden.

Please check back here for updates and photos of our progress, become a Follower via Google Friend Connect or contact us to learn more about how you can help with the garden restoration. We look forward to hearing from you!

New Water Pipes & Faucets: A Permanent Water Supply for Kim’s Garden!

Today, Steve Miller of Steve Miller Plumbing turned on a newly-installed water faucet (technically termed a “hydrant”) that will now ensure a permanent water supply for Kim’s Garden and the future plantings. Thanks to the hard work of Fernando Silva and FMS Construction, the decades-old, non-functioning water line was excavated in May, and then several resolute DC Water crews dug up Independence Avenue and replaced the galvanized pipe with new copper line, plus installed a new tap and a new shut-off valve. We’re grateful for everyone’s efforts to bring water BACK to Kim’s Garden!
