Work began this week on a major upgrade for the landscaping surrounding the Cabrillo Lions Community Center inside Aptos Village Park.

The three-day project, all donated by K&D Landscaping of Watsonville, is part of the company’s typical monthly projects to help community organizations, churches, schools and such, said Jamie Strange, K&D’s Marketing Director.

Work includes installing drought tolerant planting, a rock retaining wall, and efforts to increase sustainability to the park. Local suppliers have donated material as well, including a wealth of potted landscaping plants.

K&D President/Founder, Kendel White, said such projects are a way to better the community.

“Our community beautification is a big part of our company and how we give back to the community,” said Justin White, CEO.

The idea of sharing passion with the community sparked a conversation at K&D in 2016.

“We began thinking of ways to engage our community and put these ideas into actions,” White said. “During one of our staff meetings, the team came up with the idea of a monthly community beautification project.” 

“Once we are done this is going to look great,” said Eduardo Mejia as he worked on an irrigation box at park Thursday morning.
