Embark takes on Superior landscape

Landscaping along Tower Avenue, Belknap Street and the roundabout is getting much needed care from Embark Supportive Employment.

SUPERIOR — Dollops of sunscreen, sturdy gloves, trash bags, buckets, and a trailer full of mulch are the tools of the trade for Embark Supportive Services these days.

Their mission: To improve the overgrown landscape along Belknap Street, Tower Avenue and the roundabout in Superior.

The nonprofit organization that helps people with development disabilities gain employable skills was awarded the city contract to maintain the landscape installed over the last decade during reconstruction of Superior’s major corridors.

The work includes pulling weeds; trimming overgrown ornamental grasses; pruning low-hanging branches; and placing new mulch to prevent the weeds from coming back again.
