Chicago, IL (11/6/2018) -

Ten professional user groups of ECHO equipment received recognition in the 46th Annual Professional Grounds Management Awards announced at the recent GIE+EXPO trade show in Louisville, KY. 

Sponsored by the Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS), the annual awards bring national recognition to grounds maintained with a high degree of excellence. The program complements other national landscape award programs that recognize outstanding landscape design and construction.

The program salutes the grounds superintendent responsible for maintaining a well-manicured landscape year round. Grand, Honor and Merit Awards are offered in 15 categories, covering all types of private, public commercial and industrial landscapes. To qualify for entry, a landscape must be at least two years old and under your continuous maintenance for at least two years.
