innovation Award

This award recognizes initiative, creativity and outside-the-box thinking and solutions. To be considered a finalist in this category, a company must demonstrate how they have offered a creative solution to a problem. It could relate to retaining existing customers while attracting new ones, improving products and services, or raising your public image. The innovation could be made within design or horticulture, with a practical application of new technology, or by using known technology in new and experimental ways.

The 2017 Innovation Award recipient is Colorado Total Maintenance for Washington Park Perennial Garden Improvements. In order to reconstruct the Washington Park Flower Garden, CTM utilized the combination of georeferenced aerial drone footage and data from a handheld GPS logger to simply locate and map irrigation components into as-built drawings. The photos from the drone were also used to streamline meetings with both team and client, supplying quick and simple documentation of the job and its progress. Given the size of this project (more than 11 acres) using this technology saved countless man-hours while providing superior results.
