Flower carpet installed on Fountain Square

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A grass and flower carpet has been installed on Fountain Square.

The installation will beautify downtown Cincinnati throughout the month of April, welcoming the community daily and Reds fans before every home game.

Scotts, the official lawn care company of the Reds, installed the carpet, and is planning several activities including bagpipers, prizes and a chance to win a $25,000 backyard makeover.

A 16-member crew from Cincinnati Parks spent about nine hours installing the carpet. It's 4,200 square feet and features over 10,000 pansies in seven different colors.

A dedication ceremony was held Wednesday at noon.
