Landscaping Recognition Program 2017
Brandt Tractor Receives 2017 Landscape Recognition Award of Excellence
Brandt Tractor has been selected as the winner of the County’s Business Landscape Recognition Program competition. The company was recognized for the care they have taken to create an attractive outdoor space to greet customers at their Clairmont location that also serves to make their neighbourhood more inviting and welcoming.
The friendly landscaping competition took place throughout the summer for businesses and associations operating in industrial park areas of the County. Businesses were judged on a number of factors including their use of landscaping design principles from the County’s Land Use Bylaw, effective year-round maintenance, and use of native vegetation.
“Brandt’s attention to landscaping has certainly enhanced the profile and image of their business since they moved in to the building over 10 years ago,” said Nick Lapp, Planning and Development Services Director. “But there’s further benefits in that it boosts the profile of the area where they are located and creates a professional environment that reflects well on the entire neighbourhood.”
“We are extremely proud of our property,” said Kevin Lavallee, Brandt Tractor Branch Manager. “It’s really a reflection of our business and the types of employees we attract who take pride and ownership in everything that they do.”
Brandt Tractor is the Western Canadian dealer for John Deere construction and forestry equipment.
The County thanks all business that participated in the program and for their attention. Landscaping reaps many benefits including enhancing property values; fostering a healthier and cleaner work environment for employees and customers; improving the streetscape and area character; respecting environmental values; and creating outdoor spaces that are self-sustaining, low maintenance and reduce overall business costs.
