On February 16, Turf Care Landscape Products had the honour of sponsoring Landscape Ontario’s Lighting Conference at Piper’s Heath Golf Club in Milton, Ontario.
The event offered landscape lighting professionals a chance to network with peers and visit exhibits highlighting new and innovative landscape lighting products, as well as an up close opportunity to talk to major lighting suppliers to ask questions about new technologies.
The conference also featured a keynote presentation titled Better Illumination for Outdoor Living by Doug Alderman, LC, a respected lighting designer, who conducts lighting seminars for contractors, lighting designers, architects, landscape architects and distributors and has taught outdoor lighting classes at the college level.
Doug’s interactive session celebrated the history of outdoor light from torches and candles, to Solid-State Lighting and LEDs of today.
To close the conference, attendees participated in round table sessions to discuss the latest industry news and trends. Topics included a Design Case Study, Outdoor Power Systems, Landscape Lighting Rules & Regulations, Niche & Specialty Fixture Applications and Product and Service Sales & Pricing.
Illumicare Group Limited Transformer Prize Draw
As a special bonus to those who stopped by the Turf Care exhibit table, we offered contractors and designers the chance to submit their names to win a 300W Multi-Tap Toroidal transformer from Illumicare Group Limited.
The draw took place at Turf Care Products London office, and our lucky winner was Steve Brewer from York Nursery. Tammy Beswarick drew the winning name and Scott Sim delivered the transformer on February 21st.
Steve Brewer has been in the landscape industry for 14 years. In 2001 he began his career as a landscape labourer and moved up to a managerial position by 2002. In 2007, Steve joined the York Nursery team as the Irrigation Manager and built the irrigation division from the ground up. York Nursery’s Irrigation division now offers design, installation and maintenance of water efficient irrigation systems.
Opening 65 years ago as one of the first garden centers in the Kitchener/Waterloo area, York Nursery has been providing lawn maintenance, landscaping design and build, and snow removal services for over 30 years. Ahead of the latest trends in landscape design, York added landscape lighting services in the mid 80’s, which was a hit with their loyal landscape design clientele.
