After going through all of the applications, calling references, check safety records and doing background checks, the TLC editors have picked the 2015 Landscaper of the Year finalists.
The finalists are from all across the country and offer a variety of services — from maintenance and irrigation to design/build and snow removal. But they all have one thing in common: They have created a successful, thriving business.
We will be visiting all of the finalists in the next month to hear their stories, learn what has helped them grow their company and see their projects. Then in November, all of the finalists will come together for a cruise with the TLC staff, and we will name one the Landscaper of the Year. All of the landscapers will be featured in the magazine in 2015.
