Local landscape professionals receive prestigious honors for
commercial and residential properties
The California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA), a non-profit trade organization of licensed and landscape-related contractors, presented Trophy Awards to Santa Barbara area landscape contractors during its annual convention recently.
Steve Hanson Landscaping, Inc. of Santa Barbara won a first place in Water Features Installation for their work on the Rustic Ruin Fountain project in Santa Barbara and an outstanding achievement award for Small Residential Installation for its work with the Scherer/Brous residence in Santa Barbara, and an outstanding achievement award for Residential Estate Installation for its work on the Smith residence in Montecito.
Wilson Environmental of Santa Barbara won an outstanding achievement in the Xeriscape Installation category for their work on the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors offices.
“The CLCA is thrilled to recognize the outstanding Santa Barbara landscapers and their projects. Our association’s core goal is to support our members as they create beautiful, enduring landscapes that improve the quality of life,” said Sandra Giarde, CLCA executive director. “Winning a Trophy Award not only supports our members, but instills pride in our community and recognizes quality workmanship that only a licensed contractor can offer.”
The Trophy Awards were established to encourage interest in landscaping, recognize crafts people who produce outstanding landscapes, create pride in superior workmanship and bestow public recognition on companies, institutions, municipalities and residents for their interest in a beautiful California. A total of 56 awards were presented from more than 121 entries. Two highly regarded landscape contractors traveled state-wide to personally inspect each and every one of the Trophy Award entrants. The judges rated projects on their artistic and technical merits.
