My fellow Austinites! Austonians?

It is that time again where we must fulfill our civic duty! A tradition where we decide the direction of our glorious city. A custom that defines our unique culture. A ritual that establishes who we are.

It’s time to vote in the Austin Chronicle’s “Best Of Austin 2015 Poll!

In it’s 26th year, Best Of Austin is a yearly list of all the best local things Austin has to offer, curated by the editor’s of The Austin Chronicle. The list includes local service companies, restaurants, entertainment, and even things such as “Best Political Scandal.”

The incumbent of the “Best Landscape Service” title has been held by the same company for 6 years! And this year, we would like a turn!

So won’t you help us by letting the fine guys and gal’s at The Austin Chronicle know who the best landscape company in Austin really is?

Make your voice heard!

Cast your ballot!

Need some ideas on who to vote for in other categories?

Here is a list of a few of our Austin Favorites:

Often on this blog when we talk about rain, it’s to discuss the lack of it. However, as you know, we were blessed to have an incredibly wet spring. May being particularly drenched. The rains brought renewal and new life, where drought had destroyed. Plant life we had not seen in years flourished. Wildlife boomed. Lake’s filled. Tree’s produced new growth in a way they had not in years. Unfortunately, as nature often does, her blessings do not come without a cost.

Any sudden change can be dangerous, and we saw that during the historic Memorial Day floods in Central Texas. Tragically, many families lost not only their home’s, but love ones as well.

Mason Royal

Crew Leader

At this moment, I’d like to highlight one employee. Mason Royal is a Crew Leader on our install team. Currently training to be a fire fighter, one conversation with him and you quickly get the understanding that the motivation behind his career path is out of compassion. The destruction in Wimberley pulled at his heart strings and he decided he would spend his weekend doing what he could to help.

Mason approached Native Edge Owner, Rodney, and asked if he could borrow some small equipment for his volunteer work. When Mason mentioned that another member of the team was also interested in traveling with him, Rodney was so inspired by his actions, and thoughtful nature, that together they opened the invitation up to the rest of the team and staff members. Volunteers from every department immediately signed up. After seeing the amount of participation from the company staff, Rodney deployed Mason with a determined crew, truck, trailer, and all the equipment that they felt they possibly needed.

So our team of volunteers hit the road, excited to make a difference in their own backyard – and for that, we want to applaud Mason, Kyle, Jill, Mark, and Jose for their acts of kindness, hard work and dedication to helping others!
