Throughout the year there has been challenge's, surprises, victories, and an exciting vision for the year ahead.
I have had the great pleasure to work with some of the most talented landscape designers in Southern California and have transformed their design concepts into visual realities.
The various landscape nursery plant material providers have produced over the year( even with limited stock supplies) outstanding quality landscaping plants ,trees,shrubs, and ground covers. The new discoveries of products that have helped my clients save water,sustainable resources, money, and still maintain a healthy and beautiful landscape has been exciting.
Working with the various water district professionals and Green Industry leaders from all over the state & country has taught me many new and amazing things to share with my clients and fellow contractors.
The landscape contractors association ( California Landscape Contractor's Association ) that I am a proud member of has provided my company with valuable friendships, professional knowledge access, and a venue to just have a great time with other Green Industry professionals is truly a blessing.
Being able to get up each morning and thank God for the opportunity to see another day, touch, smell, and taste the great outdoors each day is the experience I am lucky to have each day by being a part of making our environment beautiful place for many people including myself.
Leaving my mark in society as a landscape contractor is an honor. When I am able to go past a site where my team and I have taken literally a blank slate of dirt,weeds and neglect and converted it into a beautiful, useful, and pleasant living environment is a high all of us in the Green Industry aspire to achieve and appreciate.
And lastly seeing the award winning projects completed by my Green Industry "Buds" is the most inspiring way to look forward to the new year and set goals to do just as good or better than my buds so that I too can be saluted for a job well done and worthy of winners status.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and Thank-you to all my "Ed's Blog" readers and followers and may the New Year find many blessings in store for you and your families.
