The National Association of Landscape Professionals has announced that its 28th annual Renewal & Remembrance volunteer service event is taking place on July 15, 2024. For nearly three decades, this signature event has brought together landscape and lawn care professionals from across the country to honor America's heroes by beautifying the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.  More recently, the event has also included a project on the National Mall.

This year, Renewal & Remembrance, powered by Stanley Black & Decker, will once again see dedicated lawn care and landscape specialists volunteering their time and expertise to enhance the cemetery's landscape through specific tasks like applying lime and cultivating soil, planting flowers, installing new trees, tree rings, and lightning protection for existing trees, upgrading irrigation systems and installing various hardscape projects.

In addition to their work at Arlington National Cemetery, NALP volunteers will tackle a significant landscaping project at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in partnership with the National Park Service, installing nearly 10,000 plants. The landscaping will include resilient plant selections, including Nellie Stevens Holly, Mondo Grass, Hellebores, Liriope, and Switchgrass.

"Renewal & Remembrance is a powerful opportunity to give back to our nation's Veterans," said Britt Wood, CEO of NALP. "Many landscape professionals are Veterans, so these opportunities to give back to our miliary community by caring for memorial green spaces is especially important.”

The event receives support, equipment, and materials from our partners, including title sponsor Stanley Black and Decker, with significant assistance from NALP's additional Elite Partners Aspire, Caterpillar, and STIHL.Renewal & Remembrance also receives support from Gold Partners Greenworks Commercial, John Deere, and RealGreen and Silver Partners Envu, Ewing Outdoor Supply, Gravely, Hunter FX Luminaire, Mours Enterprises and Vermeer.
