TCA Expands into a New Territory

The City of Lancaster, the hub of the Antelope Valley, is just one hour north of Los Angeles. This bustling city of over 160,000 offers an array of outdoor experiences, local shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Along with that, Lancaster is home to fourteen parks throughout the city including Lancaster’s massive, 35 field, National Soccer Center, that attracts visitors from around the world.

This year the City of Lancaster started the search for a new company to maintain their nearly 8 million square feet of parks as well as the city’s over 6 million square feet of streetscapes, medians, parkways, government facilities and parking lots. This was a very important decision for the city. They had high hopes for the quality of the landscape and also wanted to find a company that would come alongside the city and partner with them.

Over the summer they made the switch to Terracare for the next 3 plus years! Our crews are currently serving the community each day and following through on our promise to the city and its residents. We are excited to collaborate with the City of Lancaster as we strive to build relationships and beautify grounds.

 

 

 

Twelve New Properties in Livermore!

Livermore is a city in California located approximately 45 miles east of the San Francisco Bay area. The city is home to over 90,000 residents, and boasts over 40 parks, open spaces, as well as miles of trails and bike lanes. In 2013 the city was looking to hire a landscape contractor to maintain their parks and streetscapes throughout the city. Terracare was chosen and has been on the ground maintaining the landscape since.

This year the Livermore Area Recreation Park District (LARPD), a division of the City of Livermore, made the decision to put out two separate groupings of parks and facilities out for bidding. The first of these encompassed five different sites including the popular Robert Livermore Community Center and Ravenswood Historical Site. The second grouping included seven different parks and trails throughout the city. Happy with all the work Terracare has done throughout the city, LARPD, decided to continue the partnership and award both of the extensions on to TCA.

Starting in July, Terracare began maintaining the first five properties and come September, will also begin work on the next seven parks and trails. We are very excited to continue this partnership with Livermore and are pleased to provide the residents and visitors a pristine landscape that they can enjoy and take pride in!

Terracare is Rocklin Ready!

Located approximately 22 miles from Sacramento, is one of the fastest growing cities in California, Rocklin. The city has become a preferred location to live, work, visit, and grow a business, due to Rocklin’s convenient location, excellent schools and universities, and their abundant recreational opportunities.

The city desired a landscape partner that could grow alongside them and provide the community a pristine landscape. This year, Terracare was chosen to be this partner and is currently on the ground in Rocklin. It’s now Terracare’s responsibility to maintain over 4 million square feet of landscape, right of way maintenance and trash removal for the city’s parks and medians. Our great  work creates a beautiful and well-kept environment that gives residents a sense of pride in their community.

Terracare is currently serving the community each day and following through on our promise to the city and its residents. We are excited to collaborate with the City of Rocklin as we strive to build relationships, beautify grounds.

Littleton, CO, January 8, 2018 – Terracare Associates- TCA, a Monarch Landscape Company is proud to announce it has been awarded an Award of Excellence- Recognition Award by the National Association of Landscape Professionals for the Los Colinas Corporate I & II property.

Los Colinas Corporate I & II, Texas-

Los ColinasLos Colinas Corporate I & II is set on more than seven acres that supports close to 450 employees.  When the current landscape maintenance contractor began servicing the property, the Las Colinas’ new property manager was disappointed with the upkeep and curb appeal of the previous property manager’s style and the lack of ongoing maintenance.  The building management company was concerned that occupancy rates might fall due to the marginal upkeep.  The building needed to attract and retain more tenants.  The new management reached out to the landscape maintenance company with high expectations for maintenance and enhancement work, but they had a limited budget.  The landscape contractor worked closely with the property manager to design a phased plan to meet the budget constraints and exceed the property management company’s expectations.  In addition, the front entrance courtyard was of particular interest to the management team to add a focal point to the entrance of the corporate complex.

Each year, the National Association Landscape Professionals Awards of Excellence recognizes exceptional landscape, lawn care, and interior plantscape design projects from around the nation. This year only, 136 awards were bestowed for maintenance, design/build or contracting projects across the United States.

Property Highlight: Ceronix, LLC

Our Sacramento area team helps manage and procure the grounds at Ceronix’s corporate headquarters in Auburn, California. The company is an online retailer and supplier for high quality LCD replacement monitors and outdoor displays. Within the Auburn community, Ceronix has become a special area for community and wildlife to relax and refresh. Here are some fun facts about the property:

  • The 21-acre corporate complex in northern California operates as a wildlife sanctuary.
  • Its corporate grounds double as a licensed bird sanctuary with rare exotic birds, fish, turtles, and other amphibians.
  • More than 30 different bird species inhabit the area
  • The series of streams and ponds are home to more than 2,500 koi fish.
  • The landscaping maintenance and enhancement projects are so extensive they require a full-time gardener, an aquatics specialist, and experienced crews on the property throughout the week.
  • The water filtration and management system was so complex that Ceronix worked with TCA and a pond system builder to build, adjust and dial-in efficiencies on new and improved water pumps and irrigations systems. This allowed the high phosphorus stream and pond water to be distributed by a booster pump into the irrigation. The changes to the system and filtration created a true recycled process for both fertilization and conserving water.
