Heaviland Landscape Management is honored to announce that the commercial landscape management company won two awards at the 2016 California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA) San Diego Chapter Beautification Awards. The awards, presented on June 25, recognize excellence among California licensed landscape professionals, specifically those working to conserve natural resources while maintaining San Diego’s unique beauty through the careful design, installation and management of landscapes.
Heaviland Landscape Management was chosen for the following awards:
- Award Winner, WaterSmart Landscape Construction – Small (Fairbanks Montecito HOA Landscape Renovation)
- Achievement Award, Turf Conversion – Large (Palomar Tech Center landscape renovation)
“These awards validate our team’s proficiency in water smart design, construction and sustainability,” said Tom Heaviland, Heaviland Landscape Management president and owner. “I am proud of the industry experts we’ve assembled on our staff and am thrilled they’re receiving due recognition.”
Heaviland served as CLCA San Diego chapter president in 2001 and his late father, Ron Heaviland, filled the role in 1994. This year, Heaviland’s son, Christian, served on the CLCA Awards Committee, making him the third generation of the company to give back to his industry within the San Diego community.
The Palomar Tech Center project, a 42,860-square-foot renovation project, is a water-saving project that reduced maintenance costs and enhanced the property’s overall beauty through landscape design renovation and a recycled water irrigation system conversion. The project created a tapestry of drought-tolerant plants that enhanced the overall aesthetics of the property while decreasing water usage. And, by converting the site’s irrigation system to utilize recycled water, the Palomar Tech Center no longer uses potable water to irrigate, saving a projected 1.26 million gallons of drinkable water annually. The irrigation system retrofit and landscape design renovation save the commercial property a projected 2.3 million gallons of water annually.
