Employees from the Street Services Section installed 100 cubic yards of mulch in the street medians on Hesperian Boulevard from East 14th Street to Springlake Drive. The mulch was sourced locally from the Davis Street Garden Center. The mulch is made from locally derived wood and tree trimmings and serves to suppress weeds, retain soil moisture and beautify the landscape.
|The City adopted a Civic Bay Friendly Landscaping Ordinance in 2010. The ordinance requires the City to follow Bay-Friendly guidelines when installing new landscapes. The guidelines are also used as a tool for ongoing maintenance. City staff employ Bay Friendly practices such as the use of mulch, grass cycling, water conservation and drought tolerant plant selection on a regular basis to maintain public landscapes in San Leandro.|
