PLANET Adds Four Trailblazers

trailblazersThe Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) has welcomed four new Trailblazers into its program.

The title is given to individuals who show excellence and achievement in lawn care, design/build/installation, interior plantscaping, irrigation and water management, and landscape management.

Peers nominate Trailblazers based on an individual’s contribution to the landscape industry.

Each Trailblazer provides on-site mentoring to a PLANET member one day per year to help show insight on how to develop and grow a business.  

Each Trailblazer also participates in the Trailblazers on call program, which is designed to provide quick answers to members’ business questions.

Michael Becker, Landscape Industry Certified Manager, Estate Gardeners, Inc., Elkhorn, Nebraska
Pete Wilkerson, Scapesgroup, LLC, Roswell, Georgia

Landscape Management
Stephen Mazelis, Mazelis Landscape Contracting, Nesconset, New York
Jason New, Southern Botanical, Dallas, Texas

These individuals will be recognized during PLANET’s Green Industry Conference, Oct. 23–25, 2013, in Louisville, Kentucky.
