Heads Up Landscape Contractors teamed up with FedEx to perform landscape cleanup and spruce up work at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico today.
This project is part of the 4th annual PLANET Day of Service, an annual event that gives professionals in the landscape industry an opportunity to plan, organize and carry out volunteer service projects that benefit their own communities. Hundreds of volunteer landscape projects take place each year at schools, community parks, military memorials, libraries and museums across the country.
Heads Up employees volunteered their time during the day to prepare the landscape for spring by removing dead plant material, pruning, checking irrigation, pulling weeds, raking rock and more. Heads Up’s donation of time, equipment and hauling away landscape debris is estimated to be $2,000. The Day of Service is organized by PLANET, the national trade association representing more than 100,000 landscape industry professionals, who create and maintain healthy, green living spaces for communities across America.
