CLCA presents awards to California landscape contractors

Just a glimpse of the final product at the Del Amigo Residence in Danville, Calif., the CLP Landscaping project awarded Best in Show.

The California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA), a non-profit trade organization of licensed landscape and landscape-related contractors, presented Trophy Awards to outstanding landscape contractors at its annual convention.

The Trophy Awards were established to encourage interest in landscaping, recognize craftspeople 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 52 awards were presented.

“The CLCA is thrilled to recognize outstanding California 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.”
