They have recently relandscaped Handy Road and the lower shrubs and groundcovers were planted on raised mounds around the trees.

It may be an interesting approach to prevent pedestrians from crossing the roads and damaging the plants, but I doubt some of the plants e.g. Hymenocallis speciosa (common name: Spiderliliy; Family: Amaryllidaceae) would do well if there is a dry spell. Moreover, I fear the areas on one side of the Yellow Flame trees were covered with excessive soil, thus suffocating some of the roots, and this may present problems down the road.
