August 16, 2018 — DynaSCAPE Software made the trek to beautiful St. Andrew’s By The Sea in New Brunswick, Canada. This ocean side resort town was host to the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association’s board of directors meeting and National Awards of Landscape Excellence.

The National Awards of Landscape Excellence recognize Canadian companies that have actively participated in significantly raising the level of professionalism in the landscape industry.

“The Green for Life Industry Award was created to recognize the incredible companies that contribute significantly to the industry, environment and local Canadian communities,” said Bruce Hunter, CNLA president. “The CNLA Executive Committee chose to honour DynaSCAPE because of its support not only of CNLA and its provincial associations, but to the broader communities that it is a part of.  They are leaders in their field, committed to raising the level of professionalism in landscaping.”  Joe Salemi, Manager of Sales & Marketing for DynaSCAPE accepted the award.

Frustrated With Your Systems

Frustrated With Your Systems

Frustrated Landscape Contractor
May 2017 — The landscape season is in full boom mode all over North America. You’ve planned for this. You spent the latter part of last year and the early part of this year getting ready for it. What you have planned for is here upon you and your team, working the plan and striving to achieve the goals you put in place.

We’ve been fielding lots of phone calls and emails from landscape professionals like you that are in full operation of their season but have found quickly that there are some significant pain points with the design and business systems that they have in place. Some of the common pains we have heard about are:

  • Leads are falling through the cracks
  • It takes too long to do take offs from the design so the estimator can do their work
  • Working from a generic estimating system that their shoe-horning for landscape construction jobs and maintenance services
  • Estimating based on a gut feeling or experience
  • Not any real systems in place
  • Many software applications in place that don’t speak to each other contributing to disjointed operations
  • No mechanism in place to track actual costs of doing the job

This is really where DynaSCAPE comes in. We have been helping these landscape professionals by expediting the setup of their systems, getting them enrolled in our training sessions, and outfitting them the software solutions that are right for them. Alleviating frustrations in the way you manage your back office everyday is a core strength of our implementation and training specialists. It’s at the foundational level that our software solutions are based on.

Our team here at DynaSCAPE is ready to assist you in working through some of the most difficult time of the year to help you run a efficient, effective, and profitable operation.

If any of this sounds remotely familiar, let us know. The DynaSCAPE team is ready to help!

Bright Future for Landscape Industry

National Collegiate Landscape Competition at Mississippi State University sees over 750 students from 62 schools!

If there ever was any indication on what the future professionals look like this is it. The National Collegiate Landscape Competition took place March 16-19 in Starkville, MS at Mississippi State University.

The energy level was through the roof and every student on hand gave up their spring break to compete in this industry event. Their commitment and dedication to getting the absolute most out of their experience in Starkville was ultra apparent. The night before the competition students were camped out in lobbies of all of area hotels cramming in as much information as they could so they would be at the top of their game for the next day.

We noticed a few students with their laptops open practicing how to use the various tools inside of DynaSCAPE Design. A Colorado State student was up into the wee hours sketching out their planned design, searching for plant and material photos, and understanding how some of the more advanced tools worked. While we weren’t allowed to help her we did offer some encouragement and caffeine.

It was Michigan State University that took the top overall team, but it was Anna Cordiner (pictured above) at Colorado State University that won the best overall performance!

The DynaSCAPE team was on hand and very involved by hosting a 3-hour workshop, sponsoring the Computer Aided Landscape Design Competition, and sitting on the organizing committee of the National Collegiate Landscape Competition.

Largest Industry Recruiting Event!

DynaSCAPE at the Career Fair

DynaSCAPE at the Career Fair

In addition to the 28 competitive landscape events, we participated in the largest industry recruiting event all year long. The Career Fair brings some of the biggest landscape companies in the country to recruit the best and brightest young industry professionals. Several students were able to line up interviews at the Career Fair and some were even hired upon their graduation! Some of the big landscape companies were there like BrightView, Land Care, and Mariani Landscape Group interviewing students and handing out swag. If you’re looking to hire young professionals, you’ll definitely want to come next year to Provo, UT at Brigham Young University to catch the next wave.

The Competition!

Computer Aided Landscape Competition

The Computer Aided Landscape Design competition was held March 18 with 31 students. The scope of the project they were tasked with was given to them at an event brief the day before so they had lots of time to prepare. The competitors are given 1 hour and 50 minutes to complete the entire project. Students are provided with a full description of what is expected and given lots of access to training materials and recorded webinars.

The winner of this event was a last minute entry who had no previous experience with DynaSCAPE Design. His great coach and instructor at the Cuyohoga Community College in Ohio spent all night with Bryce Axelrod to help get him up to speed. Not only did he place first in the Computer Aided Landscape Design competition, he received the highest score we’ve ever handed out! Congratulations to Bryce Axelrod of Cuyohoga Community College on such a great achievement. Bryce has earned himself his own copy of DynaSCAPE Design, Color, and Sketch3D as well as a one year lab license for the landscape design program at his school. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
