Judges’ comments:
Turf: “Overall turf looks great, nicely edged and overall appearance is rich and green.”
Landscape: “Looks fantastic, and great photos of seasonal displays. Trees are well maintained. Great seasonal color on site! Impressive array of types of maintenance that is performed on site – takes a crew of highly skilled individuals to make this place look great!”
Challenges: “Storm damage, erosion, and invasive species. Great safety program in place, and number of accident-free days is impressive!”
Sustainable Practices: “Limited fertilizer is used to not contaminate ground water, irrigation through waste water, storm water ponds, LED lighting, propane mowers, IPM program, and natural area preservation.”

The Bonita Bay Community Association is very proud to receive this prestigious award (one of only four Grand Awards awarded nationally and the only community association to be recognized); congratulations to the residents of Bonita Bay on their continued support of the BBCA staff who made this award possible.

Congratulations to all the winners! (Bill Lynn, front row, far left.)
