Landscaping firm gives back by celebrating Arbor Day
The annual Arbor Day encourages groups to plant and care for trees in their communities. Bluegrass Lawncare LLC has taken this to heart by offering to plant a free tree at commercial businesses. The St. Louis-based full-service landscape company has teamed up with the Arbor Day Foundation to celebrate this annual event, which falls on April 29, the last Friday in April, throughout much of the country.
Over the next several weeks, Bluegrass will plant a Colorado blue spruce for businesses and commercial property owners that contact the company. Besides planting these hearty trees, Bluegrass will spread mulch to help retain moisture for the sapling and place a protective barrier so the sapling can grow. Once mature, a Colorado blue spruce grows to a height of 50 feet to 70 feet, with a spread of 10 feet to 20 feet.
“We understand the value of trees to our environment,” said Chris Darnell, head of marketing and business development for Bluegrass Lawn. “Trees are an enormous resource in combatting climate change, cleaning our air, conserving energy, preserving water, beautifying our community and so much more. It’s our way of giving back to the businesses that we serve and to the community in which we live.”
Any business or commercial property owner in the St. Louis region only needs to call Darnell at Bluegrass Lawn for a free tree. He can be reached at (314) 383-7099.
