Summary

The Newhall & Division group has been restoring front yards and streetscape since 2003. The group has transformed the yards and streetscape along Division Street between Shelton Avenue and Winchester, on Newhall Street between Thompson and Division, and on Thompson Street. The group worked on two front yards this year, adding a new perennial bed at one and hedges at the other. The group also worked in their curbstrips, doing maintenance and weeding, amending soil to help grass grow, and planting one street tree.
