Richmond Annex is a neighborhood in southeast Richmond. It is mostly residential and located between San Pablo Avenue/El Cerrito to the east. Carlson Boulevard is the main thoroughfare through the annex, connecting downtown Richmond with downtown El Cerrito.

This corridor is experiencing a rebirth and Gardeners’ Guild won the bid to install the landscape into brand new medians!

Our part of the project is a complete renovation that includes a new irrigation system and controller; soil preparation, planting, sheet mulching as well as decomposed granite on the medians.

A couple of weeks ago I took my camera and drove out to the site to see its progress.  We are still in the process of building the landscape and it’s very exciting to watch our people in action.  Because the medians are almost a mile long I was able to view the project in its various stages.

We are proud to be involved in this project which will make a difference for the residents who live along this thoroughfare.

    Really impressive project just completed by one of GGI’s top notch construction crews. Great to see the design include many Bay Friendly design and installation principles and guidelines. Including comprehensive soil building, low volume irrigation systems, weather based smart irrigation controller, water conserving plant materials and sheet mulching. Because of the build up of soil, cardboard and mulch the long term care of the project will require minimal to no pesticide for weed control.

    Its important to note that the project was carried out with a high level focus on traffic control reducing the risks inherent in roadway projects. The crew did a great job with this aspect of the project while completing it without incident.
