Spring is in the air
May 2014

Spring is definitely here to stay this time! With cleanups well underway, new projects being estimated, new work being started and dreams will be made reality with the outdoor living spaces you are creating and enhancing.

Recently, DynaSCAPE supported the largest gathering of future industry professionals in North America, at PLANET's Student Career Days in Fort Collins, CO. Over 800 of the brightest landscape/horticulture students from over 60 schools all over North America congregated on the campus of Colorado State University to compete in 25 different industry events, including the DynaSCAPE competition.

You see, DynaSCAPE supports professional industry organizations like the Professional Landcare Network, the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, and the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association because we believe in supporting and contributing to the development and professionalism of the industry. We take that a step further by getting involved with events like PLANET Student Career Days to support future industry professionals.

We got to meet some very interesting young industry professionals who will have very bright careers ahead of them. Three in particular, the winners of the DynaSCAPE competition at PLANET Student Career Days.
