Glenn and Melissa Jacobsen, 30-year residents of Allendale and owners of Jacobsen Landscape Design and Construction, Inc. in Midland Park, have been awarded the Community Stewardship Award for creating a culture of giving back within the community, sponsored by the National Association of Landscape Professionals and Landscape Management Magazine. The award was presented July 20 in Arlington, Va.
This award recognizes individuals and companies within the landscape industry that have demonstrated leadership through their dedication and contribution to the good of the community. Since the company founding in 1978, Jacobsen Landscape has completed a handful of volunteer projects every year, often providing labor, materials and equipment.
Over the past decade, the company has engaged in projects with more than 33 nonprofits and charities, including family and youth organizations, schools, churches and community centers.
"Serving the community is a core value of our company culture," said Glenn Jacobsen, president and company founder. "Our team works actively to support the efforts of many local, non-profit organizations by providing landscape design services to those in need. It’s an honor to be recognized for these efforts."
Jacobsen Landscape has been recognized nationally as one of the top landscape companies in America by Landscape Management Magazine and was featured on nationally syndicated Home & Garden (HGTV) for its award winning design of a unique, urban residential backyard in Hoboken.
