LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Sunday ground was broken on new landscaping around the Garden of Angels Memorial in the Park Hill neighborhood.

As part of Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer's Give A Day week, local activist Christopher 2X formed a partnership with Koetter Construction of New Albany, Ind. to spruce up the landscaping and seating around the memorial dedicated in the memory of four teens killed in a 2008 car crash.

"They say they want to give families of loved ones who've been killed in violent acts a place to remember, but the biggest thing is, we'll do all we can do, we'll put it together," Bob Koetter, president of Koetter Construction, said. "All I ask you to do is help take care of it for the memory and for the ones that we've lost. Let's do it for them."

The Koetter Construction group is donating its time and efforts to complete the landscaping project.
