Industry News

The company's projects at Six Flags America and President Lincoln's Cottage received industry recognition.

| December 20, 2010

LAYTONSVILLE, Md. – Ruppert Landscape projects at Six Flags America in Bowie, Md., and President Lincoln’s Cottage in Washington have been recognized for excellence by leaders in the green industry. The projects received awards from the Landscape Contractors Association (LCA) in their Excellence in Landscape competition and the Professional Landcare Network’s (PLANET) 41Annual Environmental Improvement Awards Program.

The Six Flags project, which received a Grand Award from LCA and a Distinction Award from PLANET in the commercial landscape management category, is a 38-acre amusement park, which has over one million visitors a year and features more than 100 rides, games, shows and attractions as well as a water park.

President Lincoln’s Cottage, which received a Grand Award from LCA and a Merit Award from PLANET in the commercial landscape installation category, was unique in that all plant material, hardscape, walkways, brickwork, grading and irrigation contiguous to the cottage had to be appropriate for the Civil War period during which Lincoln inhabited the cottage and/or cause minimal disruption to the historic landscape, which was designated as a national monument in 2000.

Both awards programs are judged by leading landscape professionals and recognize exceptional design, installation, and maintenance in both residential and commercial categories. Awards are given to landscaping professionals who execute superior projects and are committed to creating and preserving the beauty of the landscape. These programs strive to increase public awareness of environment improvement and encourage the consistent use of quality materials and workmanship.

Ruppert Landscape provides commercial landscape construction and management in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia and North Carolina from 13 branch offices. In addition, the company operates a 475-acre wholesale tree nursery specializing in large tree growing and moving in Montgomery County, Md.
