SAN DIEGO — K&D Landscaping Inc. of Watsonville took home a number of awards at the annual California Landscape Contractors Association Convention in San Diego on Nov. 12. 

CLCA presents these awards as a way to bestow public recognition on professionals who produce outstanding landscapes and superior workmanship. In order to be eligible to participate, K&D first had to enter and win the local chapter competition which was held in Santa Cruz in June. 

This was K&D's first year contending on a statewide level and they entered projects for three categories: Large Commercial Installation, Small Commercial Installation and Unlimited Commercial Maintenance, taking first place in each. 

These projects were judged by a panel of long-time industry experts who personally visited and evaluated each site.

K&D Landscaping was founded in 1986, growing from a small side venture with one man and his mower into a major family business. 

“We aim to raise the bar in the landscape industry,” said Shane White, COO.
