Industry News

John Deere Landscapes is the latest company to partner with the association.

| July 6, 2011

John Deere Landscapes is a new Water Management Certification Program Partner with the California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA). CLCA's Water Management Certification Program helps green industry professionals meet the need to reduce landscape water usage by meeting a water budget. Participants not only take a written test, but they are also required to manage at least one property to a water budget for one year to achieve certification and to submit an irrigation system audit. 

Participants are then required to continue to maintain a property to a water budget to continue their certification. CLCA's Water Management Certification carries the WaterSense Label from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is also approved for continuing education units by PLANET and the Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System.

"In the coming decades, our customers, from around the globe, will face major challenges and opportunities. Water availability is a challenge that impacts us all and John Deere Landscapes, a division of Deere, is proud to become a partner to such an important program not only to California but to this industry as well.  By providing premier supplies to landscape and irrigation contractors, as well as partnering with innovative industry programs, we are helping to support a higher quality of life here in the United States and around the world," said CEO Samuel Allen.

"We are pleased that John Deere Landscapes has chosen to join us as a new program partner," said David Silva, program manager for CLCA's Water Management Certification Program.  "This Certification Program would not be possible without the strong support of our program partners and we are excited to welcome John Deere Landscapes.  We are also grateful to our current partners Ewing Irrigation Products, Toro Company, Hunter Industries and Horizon Irrigation."

CLCA's Water Management Certification Program offers tests and trainings throughout the state of California.  For more information or to register for the Certification Program, please contact David Silva at 916-830-2780 or email at davidsilva@clca.org.  A test will also be conducted in English and Spanish at CLCA's upcoming Landscape Industry Show www.clca.us/lis.  For more information about the Water Management Certification Program please go to: http://clca.us/water.
