Landscaping company boosts Bradley School entrance

CORRALITOS — The entrance to Bradley Elementary School has taken on a new look over the spring break thanks to the volunteer efforts of a local landscaping company.

On Thursday morning a crew of nine workers from K&D Landscaping of Watsonville tore into the crab grass and overgrown shrubs in the beds that line the front of the campus. Out came the shovels, picks, wheelbarrows and a backhoe as the crew uprooted and hauled away the landscaping of the past.

“We do this once a month and it’s simply our way of giving back to the community that has been so good to us,” said company owner Kendel White. “We not only donate the labor, but also the new plants. Thanks to the folks at Vision Recycling, they donate the mulch that covers the ground. It will all look very nice when we’re done.”

For the past year, K&D has tackled similar donation projects for other schools, nonprofit organizations and others.

All the plants that the crew put in the ground Thursday were drought resistant and included ceanothus, various grasses, salvias and day lilies.

The 30-year-old K&D performs residential and commercial landscaping that has fanned out into water features, such as fountains, fire pits, decking and paving stone projects such as walkways and driveways.

White described the landscaping business as a changing industry and that his company has “done well” in keeping up with the changes.
