On Saturday November 2, 2013, Mason Mercado from Boy Scout Troop 1630 completed his Eagle Scout Service project at Sutton Elementary.The project included refurbishing the landscaping at Sutton.The first phase of the project involved tilling up the ground around the flagpole, cleaning out weeds and laying out all new plant material for symmetry and evenness.Next the troop installed 130 feet of metal edge restraint to define the borders of the landscape.The second phase of Mason's project involved cleaning-up the entrance to the parent room, removing weeds and planting new shade plants under the canopy.The third phase included hauling in six cubic yards of top soil and filling in ground holes and low spots around the Sutton campus.Six cubic yards of soil is equivalent to 325 bags (40 lbs each) of soil. The wheel barrows made plenty of trips around Sutton. After spreading the soil, two scouts used a broadcast technique to spread 100 lbs of perennial grass seed on several acres of the school campus to help establish new grass in areas that have died over the years. The fourth phase involved hauling in six cubic yards of shredded bark mulch.The mulch was placed around all new plant material including knock-out rose bushes, crepe mrytles, lantana, liriope grass and older mature trees along Sharpview.The last step was pressure washing the concrete area around the flagpole and cleaning out 65 linear feet of weed filled expansion joints.After a thorough cleaning of the expansion joints, a self-leveling urethane caulk was injected to prevent trip hazards and eliminate weeds from growing back in the joints.The entire project was completed with the help of 26 scouts and parents from Troop 1630.
