To qualify for a Decade Award, a property must first be selected as a Gold Award winner by the NALP. After ten consecutive years of maintaining that property, the company may submit an updated application proving their care continues to meet the same exceptional standard. Hoffman Landscapes began providing a comprehensive maintenance plan for the winning nine- acre property in 2008 and was first recognized for their service at the home with a Gold Award in 2010. The owners of this impressive property, home to over a thousand different plantings, entrust Hoffman with the weekly mowing, bed care, fine gardening, seasonal cleanups, and complete plant health care program needed to keep their property in tip-top shape.
“I’m very proud to be a part of this,” said Hoffman associate Wesley Rodrigues, who has served as the property care foreman at the estate for the last ten years. “It’s a lot of work, but we’ve been doing it for so long we have a good routine now – we know exactly what needs to be done and when.”
Each year, the NALP Awards of Excellence recognizes exceptional landscape and lawn care projects from around the nation. Of the 140 awards bestowed this year for maintenance, design/build or contracting projects, Hoffman received the only Decade Award of the year.
“In an industry that is no stranger to client turnover, we pride ourselves in providing high-quality products and services that have kept so many of our clients with us for over a decade,” stated Mike Hoffman, company president. “Ten years is a long time to have the same folks caring for your property and those clients become like family to us. We’re honored to have one of those valued relationships acknowledged on a national level.”
