Landscape Ontario member, Garden Grove Landscape Management of Waterdown, Ont., received two major awards at the recent Snow and Ice Management Association’s (SIMA) annual symposium in Montreal.

Garden Grove president David Lammers said, “Our goal is to continually raise the bar in every aspect of providing the best possible services to our clients.”

During the presentation of the Safety Award, Gamester said, “Winners of this award must undergo a rigorous reporting process that takes into consideration training, established safety plans, incident reports, accident claims and more.”
