Broadmoor Landscape Supply

Having worked in the previous droughts of past decades, we can implement a drought tolerant landscape design that relies on minimal or no water use. As technologies and systems advance, we can incorporate these innovative products for a green and waterwise landscape. We work closely with The Urban Farmer Store, Ewing Irrigation and Broadmoor Landscape to design and acquire the following system that’s suited for your installation.

Plant*SF is pleased to announce the completion of sidewalk-to-garden conversions at five properties in Noe Valley. This project received funding support from the SFPUC Urban Watershed Grant via the 2011 San Francisco Community Challenge Grant and in partnership with the property owners who maintain the garden. The gardens were designed to reduce stormwater loads on the combined sewer system by diverting rain into the ground to nourish plants, enhancing the sidewalk. Low-maintenance plants were selected to thrive in this microclimate and do not require irrigation. Features include reclaimed vintage granite cobbles from San Francisco streets used as edgers and Calstone permeable pavers at walkways (both available at Broadmoor Landscape Supply). Short lengths of bamboo poles are used to deter trampling. This is an effective, low-maintenance and low-cost alternative to fencing. A plant list is available HERE.

As amateur landscapers on a tight budget, my husband and I would have been lost without Broadmoor. Home Depot simply doesn't have the selection, price, or knowledge to compete, and I'm happy to support a local business. Louie and Eddie have been especially helpful. We've purchased paving cobblestones (delivered easily and right on time), and are about to order sod. Our yard looks great and we will continue to come back for all our future needs.

I have never wrote a review on yelp, but after visiting Broadmoor today, I hope after they read this, they'll change their customer service or better yet, consider getting some customer service!!! There must of been five or six people working in their store and not one person greets or even acknowledges your presents. There were two customers in there and I asked for help and one person looked up and said Just wait, I'll be with you, as the rest of them stood around talking to eachother about the new I phone. After about five minutes, I was so annoyed, I walked out. FYI this is the third time we've gone there and have experienced the same rude service. Get your act together!!! If I could choose zero stars, I would.

After checking several landscape supply places (including Lygso) it was the only place I found 1/2 inch tiles to install over a concrete pathway. Great place to buy pavers, soil (including organic), sand, mulch, and more. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful (Marty was a huge help) even if you don't know much about landscaping. This will be my go-to place going forward for any landscaping supplies I need.

In the late 1970’s, several sidewalk extensions were created along Harrison Street by the planning department in an attempt to humanize this extremely wide residential street. However, because they were fully paved and in addition to already-wide expanses of sidewalk, a bleak landscape remained. In October 2007, neighbors at Harrison and 23rd Streets partnered with DPW to remove a total of 1,000 sf of concrete and underlying roadway at two of these so-called “bulb-outs”. At the same time, 5 property owners added sidewalk landscaping to their frontages, for an additional 1,100 sf. In additional to environmental benefits, this project has resulted in a significant social transformation of the block – reinforcing the pedestrian scale, making a more hospitable and interesting walking experience, and inviting neighborly interactions. The plantings have brought together long time residents with more recent arrivals – as evidenced by neighbors introducing themselves after 30 years of living around the corner from each other and a 4-day-old introduced to nature on his first outing. Butterflies have already discovered the spot. Landscape design by Shift Design Studio.

Phase 3 of the Harrison Greenway will be planted in 2010 as “Mission Verde”, a group of 17 property owners who received funding from the City of San Francisco’s Community Challenge Grant.

With twenty-foot-wide sidewalks and no vegetation, neighbors in adjacent properties on this Marina District street realized there was plenty of opportunity for a dramatic transformation and increased infiltration (water into the ground instead of the sewers). Several sizes of stone create large areas of texture to this otherwise monotonous and barren urban landscape. Several trees were added as well as drought tolerant plantings. A second layer of sidewalk was uncovered below the current sidewalk, which was a surprise to the crew, but they proceeded undaunted and now benefit from a buffer from the street as well as greenery and shade.

For some homeowners, buying garden and landscape supplies involves an afternoon visit to a South San Francisco, CA nursery for some healthy new annuals and perhaps a few new planters. Others dream of a Japanese garden complete with flowing waterfalls, a koi pond and a graceful footbridge surrounded by luscious greenery. More

This neglected stretch of sidewalk surrounding a fenced parking lot is being transformed through sidewalk gardens. Formerly an unsafe and unsightly site of frequent illegal dumping and homeless encampments, this area extends the existing Shotwell Greenway and (with 3236 18th Street shown below) helps establish the 18th Street Greenway. Extending into the property to include an area for a heritage tree, the plantings also serve to divert stormwater from areas of the parking lot. All plants used are San Francisco natives which were propagated locally, are drought tolerant and require no irrigation once established. This project removes 3,300 square feet of concrete and is phase one of a street greening partnership with Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) which will eventually continue around the entire block and to other PG&E properties. This partnership aims to help PG&E be better neighbors and make good on their “Let’s Green This City” campaign while bringing the message of sustainable streetscapes to a wider audience.

Occupying a corner location, the sidewalk landscaping at this urban victorian single family home doubles the area of its private back yard, while benefiting the neighborhood instead of being only for the owner’s enjoyment. The semi-formal design expands basins at existing trees. At the owner’s request, exotic species are featured alongside several native species and a lemon tree. All plants are drought tolerant and require no irrigation. Landscape design by Shift Design Studio.

The Shotwell Greenway (featured near end below) turns the corner – both literally and figuratively. Located just around the corner from Shotwell Street on 18th Street in the Mission, this sidewalk garden expands upon the ideas tested in the initial model. This project was undertaken in response to a notice to repair the sidewalk due to cracked concrete and sidewalk heaving from maturing trees. Plant list includes natives such as Big Leaf Maple and North Coast Dudleya, edible Meyer Lemons, as well as a continuation of drought tolerant species used in the Shotwell Greenway (lavender, aloe, tulbaghia, etc.).

After receiving “30-day Notice to Repair Sidewalks”, a group of neighbors on Shrader Street (between Haight and Waller Streets) elected to remove large areas of sidewalk instead of replacing it. This provides a better environment for the trees which were causing sidewalk buckling, meaning that the property owners save money from having to replace concrete in the future. It is planted with native grasses and wildflowers propagated from local stock which require no irrigation. The tan material pictured is decomposed granite, a compacted, durable, walkable and permeable surface. The terra cotta material is a locally produced, post-consumer recycled product made of tumbled broken pots. Between three properties in the first phase of this greenway, there will be over 300 linear feet converted to sidewalk gardens. This configuration has plantings on both sides of the remaining sidewalk for a walk-through garden feel and to protect the buildings from easy tagging and chronic loitering.
