April 6, 2016: This week New Garden Select helped to restore the playing surface at Penn-Wright Field at Greensboro's Barber Park in association with Project EverGreen The repairs to the turf will provide a safer surface for play and practice for local and out-of-state teams. Other industry contributors included our sister company Nature's Select Premium Turf Services of Winston-Salem, Site One Landscape Supply, and employee volunteers from Syngenta Lawn & Garden.
The project included weed control and fertilization, reseeding and top dressing, sod installation and replacement of the infield surfaces. New plant material and general landscape clean-up around the field was also done.
New Garden Select team leader Phil Stilson was part of the effort. "We were glad to be part of a group project partnering with other community businesses and organizations," he said of the restoration project. "We feel it is important to give back to our community and in this case especially rewarding as it is providing a safe green space for local kids to play."
The mission of Project EverGreen is to preserve and enhance green spaces where we live, work and play. New Garden Select and Nature's Select Premium Turf Services believe that healthier landscapes and safe places to enjoy the outdoors with recreation and relaxation is important to our community and all those who live, work and play there and encourages a better quality of life for everyone.
