The Stay Green Inc. team has been rewarded for its excellence with eight awards — including four prestigious first-place honors — in the 59th Annual Landscape Beautification Awards presented by the San Fernando Valley Chapter of the California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA).
Among the first-place honors presented to Stay Green were two Large HOA Maintenance awards for Estrella Vista HOA and The Villages at Heritage Springs in Downey.
Stay Green also earned two other first-place honors in the Public Works Maintenance category for the City of Downey Police Department and City Hall, as well as for LMD Zone T-8, Valencia Summit.
Stay Green CEO Chris Angelo said it was especially gratifying to see awards going to several of Stay Green’s service locations in diverse areas of Southern California. Stay Green serves eight Southern California counties.
“These awards recognize many hours of hard work by a dedicated team of people, across multiple service locations” Angelo said. “We promote a culture at Stay Green in which excellence is cultivated and appreciated. It’s rewarding to see that the education and skills development we’ve invested in our team, coupled with the team’s own dedication to creating beautiful, sustainable, healthy landscapes in an often-challenging environment, is being recognized at the highest levels.”
The awards were presented in June at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. The CLCA is a nonprofit trade organization whose members include landscape contractors and public officials.
In addition to the four first-place awards, Stay Green was honored with four outstanding achievement awards:
* Large HOA Maintenance: Ranch at Fair Oaks.
* Small HOA Maintenance: Chantilly HOA.
* Small Residential Maintenance: Reardon Residence.
* Small Commercial/Industrial: Tapo.
The CLCA’s awards programs honor the best of California landscaping, with professional judges evaluating the landscape work based on criteria including workmanship, quality of construction, quality of landscape materials and overall appearance.
The CLCA sponsors awards as part of the organization’s efforts to “encourage interest in landscaping, recognize crafts people who produce outstanding landscapes, create pride in superior workmanship and to bestow public recognition on companies, institutions, municipalities and residents for their interest in a beautiful California.”
Angelo said it’s also gratifying to see the Stay Green team honored for its landscaping excellence on varying types of properties. “Our team brings its creativity, skills and expertise in design and maintenance to every client property, whether it’s a commercial center, a municipal property or a homeowner’s association. We’re very proud of the work our team members do on behalf of all of our clients.”
