Little Rock City Beautiful Commission 2013 Landscape Awards
In 2013, the Little Rock City Beautiful Commission will announce its nomination kickoff for the 34th annual Landscape Awards in May. These are given to businesses that go beyond the City's requirements to develop or improve their landscaping.
While its easy to see landscaping as merely icing on the cake, research has shown that its impact has much more depth. Landscaping can increase property and resale values, lower energy costs, improve business and sales, and create positive perceptions for areas.
