Downtown San Rafael's Phase 3 Mulching Beautification Project Before and After Photos:

Details: The City of San Rafael and the BID joined efforts once again for Phase 3 of our Downtown Mulching Project on Dec 1st to help beautify our Downtown Corridor. Phase 1 was on Earth Day Clean and Green Day in April.  Phase 2 was in September.

Why Mulching Matters: Mulching not only adds an aesthetic appeal to our streets but also offers various benefits, including:

  • Weed Suppression: Mulch helps to suppress weed growth, reducing the need for herbicides.
  • Moisture Retention: It retains moisture in the soil, helping plants thrive during hot summer days.
  • Soil Improvement: As mulch breaks down, it enriches the soil with essential nutrients.
  • Erosion Control: Mulch helps prevent soil erosion during heavy rains.

Thank you to our fantastic volunteers: A heartfelt thank you to our dedicated volunteers whose commitment brought this vision to life! Your hard work, passion, and green thumbs have left an beautiful mark on our neighborhood.
