We are a member of the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET).
PLANET is an international association serving lawn care professionals, landscape management contractors, design/build/installation professionals, and interior plantscapers. Last month was very special to us as April 22nd was Earth Day. Pro Touch Landscapes and Pro Chem Management were charter participants for an inaugural event called the PLANET Day of Service. The PLANET Day of Service was a great opportunity for us to join our fellow green industry professionals for a day of giving back to local communities around the nation.
Events like this help raise awareness about the lawn care and landscape profession. Internally we used this day to show our commitment to a great cause as well as fostering teamwork among our employees. By choosing to develop Pro Touch Park, we helped to revitalize a place where people live, work and play. The park on the corner of Riverside Drive and Hwy 129 was turned from an ugly corner into a place of retreat. It will provide a place that beautifies our community and shows our commitment to improve Hall County’s green spaces. With support from Riverside Military Academy cadets, we finished the landscape for the park in one day. Riverside’s cadets donated their labor to lay the sod and assisted with installing mulch. We have future plans to add paver areas with seating to beautify the park, but this year we focused on plant material and turf. We hope you will come and check out Pro Touch Park.
