Sidewalk Landscaping Permits


San Francisco Public Works issues low-cost permits for sidewalk landscaping, so property owners can convert a portion of their sidewalk into an attractive landscaped area. Public Works staff ensures that landscaping on sidewalks is properly constructed and maintained to protect public safety, ensure pedestrian access and protect city infrastructure.  Landscaped sidewalks look great, provide wildlife habitat, reduce flooding, and increase property values!
