The California Landscape Contractors Association presented Sohnco Landscape, Inc. of Rancho Mirage the prestigious Stuart J. Sperber Memorial Sweepstakes Trophy for their work on Sky Ridge Estate.
Valley Crest Tree Company sponsored the award, which was presented during the association's annual convention in San Diego November 9, 2012. The award honors the best of show.
Two highly regarded green industry veterans traveled state-wide to personally inspect each and every one of the 150-plus Trophy Award entrants. The judges, who rated projects on their artistic and technical merits, were impressed with work done by Sohnco Landscape, Inc.
The California Landscape Contractors Association sponsors the Trophy Awards to encourage interest in landscaping, recognize crafts people who produce outstanding landscapes, create pride in superior workmanship and to bestow public recognition on companies, institutions, municipalities and residents for their interest in a beautiful California.
According to President Scott Sohn, "SOHNCO Landscape was created in 1979. We employ 35 fulltime employees and specialize in high-end custom homes. We are licensed in California and Nevada and are known for our extensive use of boulders and stone, along with providing extremely high quality and detailed work. The Sky Ridge Estate was more of an art project than a landscape job. All the unique materials used on this job made it an exciting and fulfilling project to work on."
The California Landscape Contractors Association is a non-profit trade organization of licensed landscape and landscape-related contractors. Also included among its approximately 2,200 members are landscape suppliers, landscape architects, public officials, educators, and students. Although formally incorporated in 1952, CLCA has been meeting as an association since 1937.
