The Port of San Diego is working on improvements to landscaping ay Tidelands Park to enhance the entry into the park. The proposed project would involve landscaping improvements within the turning circle, parking islands, and park entrance at Tidelands Park by the San Diego unified Port District. The existing plants are approximately 25 years old and dying due to irrigation system failures. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve the removal and replacement of existing landscaping and the removal of old and installation of a new drip irrigation system to manage the proposed landscaping improvements.
The Tidelands Park landscaping renovations include:
- Replace existing plants (mostly rhaphiolepis shrubs) 25+ years and dying.
- Add a variety of slow growing, water wise plants with manageable and appropriate density.
- Add colors, textures, and varying heights.
- Add new trees to increase species and color diversity.
- Install drip irrigation; coupled with CalSense smart controllers and automated notifications to manage water usage.
