On April 22nd of each year landscape professionals across the country set out to volunteer their time and skills to reinvigorate a well deserved green space. The day of service unites the landscape industry by giving back to our nation’s backyards, parks and green spaces in honor of earth day.
This year approximately 50 HighGrove employees and volunteers conducted four landscape projects for The Chanan Foundation in Hiram, Georgia.
We were able to install permanent foundation planting at the facility's entrance in order to add a more welcoming feeling. Our team also completed an enhancement of mulch on the property along with mowing, weed-eating and thinning of pear trees. To dress up the space, our in-house design team chose colorful and textured plant varieties including crape myrtles, camellias, hollies and abelias.
Once the project was completed faculty and friends from the foundation had a chance to view the final product and learn the basics on maintaining their new landscape.
It was great to have HighGrove’s senior leadership, middle management, client relationship managers, and accounting and office personnel dedicate their day to help transform this property into a more fun and efficient space.
The Chanan Foundation is a private non-profit corporation that provides day training, supported living, host home, and group home services for adults with developmental disabilities. Founded in 1999, the foundation was established to be of one mind, having compassion for one another.
The Chanan Foundation currently serves adults with disabilities, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week depending upon the level of the client’s need. All services focus on helping their friends acquire, maintain, and enhance the skills needed to live the most full and independent lifestyle possible.
