Actually, MTO there would be too much Colateral damage. I think land mines would be better! Also who cares, it's only for a couple of days.

"Do they have any other colors of fencing other than orange?"

Maybe they could use cammo fencing so no one would even see that there were any plantings?

Shouldn't they have built these planters a little higher to deter people from walking through them ? Do they have any other colors of fencing other than orange ?

It only makes sense to protect the planting during the parade. The flowers are great all summer. They should be protected and so should the newly planted trees. That area has a lot of people moving around during the parade.

They should ask the for high schools art clubs to make permanent signs or step stones that say phrases that indicate to stay out of the landscaping. It will deter people. Are there the rude ones who ignore those things? Yes but some people seem that they need constant reminder that some behaviors are unacceptable. These would also be done is artistic fun ways to enhance the beauty of them. I'm sure the art clubs or classes would enjoy the project. If the landscaping its self is so valuable that fixing it would be detrimental to the city then I would have to wonder who planned out the landscaping and why did they not consider cost efficiency and hardiness of the plants. Have they explored any clubs that may want to donate time to take care of these beds? Doing what they did last year should not be an option and sends the wrong message about our city.

fill the planting pits with spikes, that should prevent anyone from wanting to step in them.
