We are dedicated to having the best-trained workforce in the industry. As members of the California Landscape Contractors Association, we participate in the training programs offered by this industry organization. The CLCA sponsors a rigorous "hands-on" test administered under actual field conditions. With only a 20% first time pass rate, only the best workers are able to obtain the designation of CL Tor Certified Landscape Technician. All of the managers and supervisors in our company have the CL T designation. No other contractor of our size and diversity in Southern California has achieved this many certifications.
