As efforts to clean up the Chesapeake Bay broaden, the
landscape industry is seeing increased opportunities
to incorporate green infrastructure projects. Learn how
conservation landscaping practices can complement the
services your business already provides. We’ll discuss
where these opportunities exist, what new initiatives
are helping to pave the way, and how to make sure
your business doesn’t get left behind. The successful
implementation of these green projects will not only
improve the health of the bay, but also contribute to your
company’s bottom line.
