Renewal & Remembrance returns to Arlington National Cemetery for 20th year

NALP_LL_174x174The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) will host its annual Renewal & Remembrance event at Arlington National Cemetery on July 11.

Now in its 20th year, this event brings together hundreds of volunteers to help beautify a large part of the cemetery’s historic grounds.

Due to the positive impact of several years of lime applications at Arlington, lime isn’t required this year; instead, the scope of work includes phosphorous application, aeration, irrigation installation and repairs, tree cabling and lightning protection, and landscape and hardscape projects. Teams will be using push spreaders and walk-behind aerators to allow application and aeration in tight areas and between tombstones.

“It is an honor to celebrate 20 years of partnership with Arlington National Cemetery, helping to ensure that the grounds are as healthy and beautiful as possible,” said Sabeena Hickman, CEO NALP. “Many lawn care and landscape companies come back every year, which shows the commitment that our industry has to caring for our treasured National landmarks.”

Renewal & Remembrance is held in conjunction with Legislative Day on the Hill. Legislative Day on the Hill is open to the entire industry, while registration for Renewal & Remembrance is open to NALP members and participation is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
