My garden, My city...

On 11 May 2008 Asian News International reported: The pollution-free city of Chandigarh, which borders both the states of Punjab and Haryana, India---with its flowering trees, parks, gardens, and 'vast green expanses'---is a model city for the rest of India and the world to emulate.

In the planned city*, "One can today notice how the general feeling of---My garden, My city---has influenced the entire landscape and ultimately turning out to be the essence of Chandigarh. Chandigarh has also gained worldwide reputation for being a verdant haven. Be it roadsides, colonies or every possible place, care is given to ensure beautification through greenery."

The city's administration has employed over 600 gardeners to keep the city's gardens and landscaping green and beautiful.
