The Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) has awarded two companies with their annual Sustainable Company Award, Precision Landscape Management of Dallas, Texas, and Sebert Landscaping, Inc. of Bartlett, Illinois.

Companies are selected based on their attempts to protect and conserve resources, reduce waste, prevent pollution, as well as those that promote an ethic of sustainability within their workplace.

Precision Landscape Management practices recycling of plastic pots and wooden pallets, promotes water saving irrigation practices to clients, focuses on organic plant care, encourages clients to use native and non-invasive plant species, and composts all organic waste, including leaves, lawn clippings, brush, and more.

In the office, the company provides recycling containers, and encourages double-sided copying, the use of recycled paper, and "think before you print" paper conservation. The office has energy efficient windows, zone heating, and motion sensor lights.

"Being a sustainable company means that we strive to be as 'green' as possible whether it is in our office or our in the field," said Bruce Birdsong, Landscape Industry Certified, CEO of Precision Landscape Management.

Sebert Landscaping's corporate headquarters, completed in 2010, is on track to be LEED Gold certified. The facility includes a green roof, along with a new solar-paneled 15,000-square-foot garage. Employees are provided with bike racks and preferred parking is available for carpool and low-emission vehicles. Recycling is available throughout the headquarters.

Landscape clients receive counseling on water saving irrigation systems and water saving methods, use of native plants, and converting annual beds to perennials. Sebert composts leaves, grass clippings, etc., and recycles motor oils, fuels and lubricants. It is also converting to propane mowers.

Jeff Sebert, president of Sebert Landscaping, Inc., takes sustainability seriously. "As a steward of this planet, it is our responsibility to be the best we can be, to enhance the environment for future generations."
