NALP Honors Stay Green Team for Regional and Local Projects
Santa Clarita-based landscaping firm Stay Green, Inc. has been recognized in a national, industry-wide competition, bringing home several awards for its ability to design, install, and maintain beautiful and healthy landscaping.
The Stay Green team earned three awards for landscaping excellence from the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), which recognizes the nation’s best landscaping projects through its annual Awards of Excellence program.
“These awards go to our team members who bring dedication and professionalism to every project,” Stay Green CEO Chris Angelo said. “Making each property look its best with healthy, sustainable landscaping is always our objective. The NALP awards recognize that we are achieving this goal.”
Stay Green is being honored with NALP Bronze Awards for landscaping excellence at three commercial and residential housing projects in Santa Clarita and throughout Southern California: The Sorrento at Porter Ranch Community Association, a community of 653 single-family homes nestled in the hills of the northwest San Fernando Valley; University Village Thousand Oaks, a picturesque 65-acre retirement community; Santa Fe Homeowners Association, a condominium community that offers lush, attractive landscaping.
“These are highly regarded communities for elegant, modern living, and we’re proud to provide landscaping that enhances the visitor and residential experience,” Angelo said.
The NALP Awards of Excellence ceremony recognizes superior projects in the areas of landscaping, lawn care and interior maintenance, design/build, installation, container plantings and erosion control. Projects range in size and scope. Awards are presented to lawn and landscape companies across the nation.
The Awards of Excellence judging criteria include overall appearance, degree of difficulty, appearance of turf, appearance of trees, appearance of annual color, appearance of shrubs and appearance of ground cover.
“These awards are a reminder that we continue to hit the mark in going above and beyond for our clients,” Angelo said.
The NALP awards will be officially presented in October during the “Landscapes 2019” expo and conference in Louisville, Kentucky.
The National Association of Landscape Professionals (www.LandscapeProfessionals.org) represents an industry that employs nearly 1 million landscaping, lawn care, irrigation and tree care professionals who create and maintain healthy green spaces for the benefit of society and the environment.
The NALP Awards Program offers members an opportunity to network within the industry and establish higher standards for landscaping methods. Award winners garner prestige from their industry peers and become more well-known in the industry and in their communities.
