Michael Kravitsky IV and his group, including son Michael V, daughter Kristy, and wife Suzanne, were designated to spread lime to more than 23 acres in Arlington National Cemetery.
“My family and I are honored to be a part of this service project every year,” says Michael Kravitsky IV, Landscape Industry Certified Technician, PLANET member and Team Captain of the Pentagon Team. “It’s something that we look forward to every July. Paying our respects to our military personal who have sacrificed so much for us is always a great feeling. Plus, it gives lawn care professionals from all over the country a chance to hang out, catch up, and work as a team; all competitive aspects -if any- are completely thrown aside.”
