The National Association of Landscape Professionals is once again partnering with Turfgrass Producers International to promote National Lawn Care Month in April. New partners this year are the Irrigation Association and the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute.
For years, NALP (formerly as PLCAA) has championed National Lawn Care Month, understanding how important it is to promote professional lawn care and educate consumers about the benefits of turf. The aim of National Lawn Care Month is to heighten public awareness of the environmental and health benefits of natural grass.
"This education campaign is important, and to have OPEI and the Irrigation Association join TPI as partners, means that this is truly an industry-wide effort in the month of April," said Sabeena Hickman, CAE, NALP CEO.
"We are excited to work with NALP and our green industry partners on this important initiative," said Deborah Hamlin, CAE, CEO of Irrigation Association. "When managed properly, landscapes bring so many benefits to our communities. National Lawn Care Month is a great reminder to mow, fertilize and irrigate responsibly."
"Lawns benefit our environment, our health and our lifestyles, so it makes sense to celebrate this integral part of our living landscape," said Kris Kiser, President and CEO of OPEI. "It's more important than ever for home and business owners to pay attention to landscape health in the springtime, so these living spaces can continue to deliver the benefits our communities need."
