Ben Graf of Green Oasis Receives MNLA Award for Landscape Excellence



Several members of the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association (MNLA) were recently honored with an MNLA Award for Excellence in Landscape. Among those honored through the Landscape Awards program was Ben Graf of Green Oasis in River Falls.

A panel of practicing professionals in landscape education, landscape architecture and horticulture judged each entry based upon quality of design, appropriateness of materials used, and the superiority of the workmanship. Entries are not judged against each other, but rather against standards of excellence in the green industry.

The project was noted by the judges for “Attention to detail and quality execution of the design. The clients got exactly what they were shown in the design. The creative solutions to challenging goals and site requirements, combined with a high degree of quality work set this project apart. The project is clearly an award winner.”

 The Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association is the state’s largest and oldest green industry trade association with more than 1,100 member-businesses including garden centers; landscape contractors and designers; tree and flower growers; irrigation contractors; and lawn, tree, snow, and garden professionals.
