Pacific Landscape Management in Hillsboro, Ore., raised $13,060 for The Providence Cancer Institute by participating in the Hood to Coast Relay event.

An overnight, long-distance relay race, Hood to Coast is held annually in Oregon, typically in late August.

The company’s team “Lawn Gone and Hauling Grass” completed a 200-mile relay race in 27 hours and 20 minutes, placing 120th out of 1,000 teams.

Stihl plans to collaborate with The Fuller Center for Housing, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that seeks to eradicate poverty housing by partnering with local community leaders and organizations to build and refurbish homes.

Stihl is supplying battery-powered mowers and accessories valued at $72,000 to support The Fuller Center for Housing’s promise to provide adequate shelter for people in need worldwide.

“The Fuller Center is a vital resource for those in need,” said Roger Phelps, corporate communications manager for Stihl. “We want to help The Fuller Center’s mission by empowering these families with the products they need to easily maintain their new properties. Stihl battery-powered mowers will allow them to do this with at a low operating cost, and with virtually zero ongoing maintenance required.”

The 100 Stihl battery-powered lawn mowers donated will allow these new homeowners a means to maintain their properties without the cost of fuel, according to the company.

ManageMowed, a commercial landscape management company, signed several new clients to its roster and added key positions to its corporate team. The company also recently rebranded from Greenpoint Landscape Management.

Most recently, ManageMowed inked an agreement to manage landscaping needs for Taco Bell locations across the Portland, Ore., area and signed an agreement to manage snow plowing and removal for Public Storage locations in the Denver region. Additionally, the brand has added a full-time position to its account management team to support its growing scope with Safeway, a national grocery chain.

“The interest and trust among facilities managers in ManageMowed is booming; our services are in high-demand,” said Peter Roberts, co-founder of ManageMowed. “Through 20-plus years of experience, we’ve perfected our model to make the lives of our clients easier and take the headache out of landscaping.”

As the brand continues to grow its corporate team and client roster, it’s expanded to new markets as well, launching corporately run offices in Denver and Portland in the past 18 months.
