Supporting Successful Students!
We are delighted to announce Alyssa Brown as the recipient of our 2017 Scott Stewart Allen Scholarship Award.
Annually, L.I.D. Landscapes, a Martin Associates company, recognizes rising, young professionals in the landscaping industry for their outstanding academic performance and their dedication to community service and personal development. This year's 2017 Scholarship was awarded in honor of Scott Stewart Allen, the late son of BYU Professor Phil Allen. Candidates for the scholarship were selected based on criteria including character development, industry experience, and their commitment to advancing and personally financing their own education.
Alyssa Brown is a sophomore at Brigham Young University- Provo majoring in Landscape Management with a minor in Spanish Studies. Among her many attributes, Ms. Brown stood out for her strong work ethic, her perseverance through struggles, and her ambition to improve the world by helping others. In her own words, Alyssa believes that, "If you have the capacity to meet someone else's need, it becomes your responsibility to do so." Alyssa's positive attitude, strong moral fiber, and her devotion to service exemplify the same grace and humility that Scott Allen modeled in his own life.
We are very pleased to celebrate and commemorate Scott Stewart Allen's legacy by awarding this year's scholarship to Alyssa Brown. Congratulations, Alyssa!!!

L.I.D. Landscapes Donates and Plants Tree for Mapleton Early Childhood Center
December 2014-Originally an elementary school built in 1888 that was closed approximately 10 years ago, Mapleton Early Childhood Center in Boulder, Colorado, was recently reopened after a thorough and creative renovation. It is now Boulder Valley School District’s first facility dedicated entirely to preschool students. Mapleton Early Childhood Center serves a diverse population of children from a wide array of neighborhood and needs.
When the preschool students at Mapleton started their unit about trees, Megan Dubofsky, one of the parent volunteers, had an idea for some hands-on learning. Dubofsky contacted L.I.D. Landscapes to see if they would donate a tree for the children to plant. After a few phone calls, Dan Quakenbush and his team at L.I.D. Landscapes arrived at the school and planted an American Linden, surrounded by an audience of wide-eyed preschoolers.The children dug in and got their hands dirty, literally. They helped peel back the burlap on the root ball of the tree, dug the hole for the tree’s new home and added soil amended with organic matter for the grand finale. Throughout the experience they asked questions such as, “How big will this tree get?” and “What will the leaves look like?” The preschoolers learned where trees come from, how to water and take care of them, and the importance of taking care of nature and landscape.
"We really appreciated the beautiful tree donation from L.I.D.,” Dubofsky said. “The children were so excited, and they will always have the memory of participating in the planting. L.I.D. could not have been more helpful and pleasant to work with."
Leonor Rosser, Community Liaison at Mapleton said she appreciated how L.I.D. Landscapes planted the tree, “while the children observed and asked questions. They involved the preschoolers throughout the whole process, making it totally interactive and hands on.”
“We are very grateful for this opportunity,” Rosser said. “We are delighted to see a new tree growing in the school yard, a tree that will grow along with our amazing preschoolers!"
Habitat For Humanity: L.I.D. designed and supervised construction of Harmony Haven, a four-plex in Boulder, Colorado with generous donations from Boxelder Creek Nursery, Lefthand Valley Nursery, Green Spot Nursery, Pioneer Sand Company, Sturtz & Copeland and Rainbird.
We donated over 150 hours to construct the project with the enthusiastic help of volunteers from Level 3 Communications, White Wave and Colorado State University.
L.I.D. Design emphasizes low maintenance, xeric plantings that attract birds and butterflies and provide all season interest.
Attention Homes: L.I.D. Landscapes held a Potting Party that raised a charitable contribution to Attention Homes!
