Brickman Landscape, a San Diego-based landscape company, has been honored for its recent donation of landscape renovation to the Boys & Girls Club of East County’s El Cajon campus, 1171 East Madison Ave., with a 2012 Beautification Award from the California Landscape Contractors Association’s San Diego Chapter. The landscape renovation was part of a Brickman’s Founder’s Day project. While Brickman donated landscape design services and labor, various landscape industry vendors donated materials. Brickman’s project team consisted of 35 administrative and operations managers who completed the project in one day.
The landscape renovation included the conversion of a parking area alongside the building to both a large planter in the front of the building and a safe drop-off zone for children. Also, a dry riverbed was created to provide a drainage solution for the site.
Drought-tolerant plant material was installed in most planting beds, including kangaroo paws, fountain grasses and various succulents. Turf sod was laid in various parts of the campus where dead grass formerly occupied, and a new, more efficient irrigation system was installed.
