1 of 12 Companies recognized by Total Landscape Care Magazine
A great honor and achievement
I was extremely honored on behalf of kokobo greenscapes to be included in this wonderful program. To be considered as a finalist amongst over 2,500 nominated firms throughout the USA was truly wonderful for our company and a testament to our continuous drive to offer our clients the highest quality of service, knowledge, product, and of course unique, awe inspiring designs to enhance their outdoor spaces. I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful group of finalists on the cruise to the Bahamas last November and forged some wonderful friendships while learning a lot about the other finalist’s businesses and projects.

How it Works to be chosen:
“Every year, the Total Landscape Care editors choose the top 12 landscapers from across the country to be honored in our Landscaper of the Year program, presented by Case Construction Equipment. Some factors that affect our decision are the landscapers’ portfolio of work, services offered, business techniques, community involvement and what sets them apart from others in the industry.” Companies entering in this competition must submit a list of client references.
The chosen finalists are each featured in a full-length magazine article, along with photos of their projects. They also join Total Landscape Care staff on an all-expense-paid cruise to the Bahamas hosted by Case Construction Equipment where they can network with other landscapers, enjoy nightly gala events and relax on the sandy beaches.
Beside client references and photos of finished work, companies can submit photos and information about their facilities and employees, copies of company literature, training manuals or promotional campaigns, or anything else that convey the caliber of ones company to the Total Landscape Care editors.
Once the 12 finalist are picked, an editor visits each company, to see the personal side of the business. Last autumn, we at kokobo had a nice lunch including Michael’s homemade tomato soup on “our rooftop lunchroom” with an editor from TLC. He made it a point to visit with each of the designers as well as Michael and other key staff! After lunch, he and Michael were off to more site visits in NYC – both in progress and finished projects.
