02 Nov What Are The ALCA “Excellence in Landscaping” Awards?
Most industries hold awards ceremonies in order to recognize great work and promote excellence. Within the Arizona landscaping industry, the chief awards ceremony is the Arizona Landscape Contractors’ Association (ALCA) “Excellence in Landscaping” Awards. Here’s a closer look at the ALCA and how their awards ceremony recognizes the state’s finest landscapers.
The Arizona Landscape Contractors’ Association
The ALCA is dedicated to providing guidance to contractors throughout Arizona. This involves education about new rules and regulations, helping contractors reduce the cost of doing business, and organizing occasional workshops. The ALCA also seeks to improve the image of the landscaping industry and provides networking opportunities for Arizona landscapers who help make properties throughout Arizona more beautiful. Any service provider that’s serious about offering their clients outstanding quality is an ALCA member.
Excellence in Landscaping Awards
Another function of the ALCA is to recognize excellence in Arizona landscaping. Outstanding projects and firms are recognized with the Award of Excellence, Award of Distinction, Judges Award, and other special awards. The Best Sustainable Landscape Management Award goes to the firm that places an emphasis on conservation in their gardening and irrigation efforts. The Xeriscape Award recognizes a project that makes the best use of Xeriscape principles, while the Presidential Award is the ceremony’s “best in show” accolade.
The 37th Annual ALCA Awards
The ALCA is set to award this year’s outstanding Arizona landscapers on Saturday, November 23. The ceremony will take place at The Wigwam in Litchfield Park, Arizona.
