Landscaping and Parks Maintenance
Maintaining Medians and Parkways
Re-landscaping medians is done by City of Rocklin staff. Regular maintenance, weed control, hedging and pruning are handled by various contract landscape companies hired by the City of Rocklin.
The entire irrigation system for all median and parkway landscaping is maintained by City staff, as is over ten miles of wood fencing.
Landscape Inspection and Compliance
The Parks & Recreation Department has one full time City employee responsible for landscape inspections and contract compliance for over 4.5 million square feet of landscaping within the City of Rocklin. In addition, City staff adheres to all state, county and city mandates.
Future Citywide Development
As part of the long range planning and budgeting process, management and supervisory staff are required to work with development and engineering staff to coordinate new landscape enhancement projects. These activities include:
- planning, designing and budget review
- providing landscape material recommendations
- performing inspections
- final walk-through on completed projects
Additionally, Parks staff act as a support unit to project managers throughout the various stages of construction.
Landscape contracts will be growing right along with the construction of landscaped areas in new developments and throughout the City.
