Cooler temperatures are a welcome relief to the long, hot summer. Activities shift from weekly mowing and detailing to leaf cleanup and preparing for winter. We plan lunches and prize giveaways to thank our full time and seasonal workforce for getting us through another year.
It’s also award season. A time for us to bring well-deserved recognition to some of the beautiful properties that we create and maintain for our clients.
Each year, Yellowstone Landscape participates in the National Association of Landscape Professionals’ Awards of Excellence program. Entries are due in early August, but in late September we find out what the judges thought of our work. And, if we’re fortunate, we get the opportunity to accept our awards during a special ceremony at LANDSCAPES, our industry’s annual conference and trade show.
This year was the 50th anniversary of the Awards of Excellence program, and we submitted 5 projects for consideration.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing the stories and photos of our 5 award-winning projects from this year:
