For this project, the company's employ - ees volunteered their time to enhance the playground at St. Paul the Apostle, which is lo- cated along the Chef Menteur Highway in east New Orleans. They installed an educational and child- friendly butterfly garden that consisted of four beds created out of concrete masonry units to create a beautiful new outdoor learning envi - ronment. The plants will provide a safe haven for butterflies, along with excitement and a unique learning experience to the children of St. Paul the Apostle. Four cubic yards of soil were used and donated for the butterfly garden. The Mullin Landscape team members also transformed an empty concrete space into a bike trail with games for the children. The project was created to provide the school with a space to aid the children's well-being. For the bike, trail Mullin Landscape used Tuff - crete concrete stain on the previously laid pavement and painted games for the children to enjoy while engaging in physical activity. The stain will provide longevity to the color vi - brancy for the children for many years to come. The project received materials from Char - vet's Garden Center, Helm Paint & Decorat- ing, Home Depot Inc. and Masonry Products, whose generous donations provided everything needed including, concrete masonry units, plants and the concrete stain. Mullin Landscape was happy to give back to the community and grateful for the benefits of the team building aspect of this endeavor.
