Four Star Greenhouse has received the President's Plaque, an award given from the Keep Michigan Beautiful (KMB) organization, for its public display gardens at the company's headquarters in Carleton, Mich.
KMB's awards recognize products that involve environmental cleanup, historical preservation, site beautification or restoration, and environmental education. Four Star's display gardens include more than 20 landscape beds, a large variety of containers and baskets hanging from an extended pergola, a covered bridge, water features, stone patio gathering areas and walkways, and a new perennial bed to showcase Proven Winners perennials.
The garden is planted with thousands of Proven Winners and Proven Selections annuals and grasses, as well as Color Choice shrubs. The gardens are open to the public and industry professionals during the summer months.
"We are so proud to receive this award," says Tom Smith, Four Star president. "We see the gardens as a way of giving back to the community while also showcasing the beauty of Proven Winners plants."
