Personnel file: Danville home project earns landscape contractor award


A Livermore-based landscaping company was recently awarded with a trade association's Best of Show honor for its work on a residential project on Del Amigo Road in Danville.

The project -- the address of which was not revealed -- earned CLP Landscaping of Livermore the Stuart J. Sperber Memorial Sweepstakes Trophy, a top-tier award in the annual recognition program of the California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA).

"The CLCA is thrilled to recognize East Bay landscapers and award-wining projects. Our association's core goal is to support our members as they create beautiful, enduring landscapes that improve the quality of life," CLCA executive director Sandra Giarde said in a statement.

"Winning a Trophy Award not only supports our members, but instills pride in our community and recognizes quality workmanship that only a licensed contractor can offer," Giarde added.

A total of 52 awards were presented this year, with two regarded landscape contractors traveling statewide to personally inspect each of the contest entrants, according to the CLCA. The judges rated projects on their artistic and technical merits.

The CLCA is a nonprofit trade organization of licensed landscape and landscape-related contractors, with approximately 1,800 members also including landscape suppliers, landscape architects, public officials, educators and students.

Organization officials decline to share the exact address of the Del Amigo Road project, citing privacy considerations for the residents.

Hey Herm...newsflash - we are in a DROUGHT. That's called drought-resistant landscaping. It looks great to me and, apparently, to the landscaping experts who did the judging.

Newsflash – There are drought tolerant plants that don’t look like dead weeds.

And fake grass looks fake.
