Bushwackers Landscaping receives President’s Club Award

Friday, March 16, 2012 — Bushwackers Landscaping of Richfield was recently awarded the prestigious President’s Club Award by Smith Turf & Irrigation. The recognition is reserved for only those companies that display professional and business leadership in the irrigation and landscape lighting industries.

The award was presented by Clark O’Neill, territory manager for the landscape products group of STI.

“It was a pleasure to recognize Bushwackers as a recipient of our 2011 President’s Club,” O’Neill said.

“In a year of business contraction, non-existing housing starts, and market challenges, Chad Little and his team at Bushwackers Landscaping actually grew their revenue. While landscape operators in the Carolinas tended to see their billable services retreat, Bushwackers expanded their knowledge base, sought out new services and educated their clientele about water saving irrigation products and energy saving landscape lighting options. We felt it deserving to recognize their industry-leading efforts to provide quality service and cutting-edge products to their customers.”

Owner Chad Little was pleased to accept the award, stating, “We are proud to be presented with this recognition. In a year of tough economic times, we were extremely pleased to have seen growth in several areas of our company. We have adapted L.E.D. lighting and low water use products to benefit our customers in the long run.

“Our customers may invest slightly more on the front end, but they will receive a return on their investment for years to come. We appreciate being recognized for the efforts we’ve taken, and look forward to continued growth in the year ahead.”

STI is a fourth generation family owned and operated golf course equipment, irrigation, turf care and landscape products business headquartered in Charlotte. The company has been in operation since 1925 and currently has 22 locations serving North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Bermuda.

Bushwackers has been serving Stanly and surrounding counties for 15 years.

Also, they provide landscape design and installation, irrigation design and installation, hardscape installation (retaining walls, paver patio and walks, fireplace, outdoor living areas), landscape light design and installation, and landscape maintenance.
