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.
