CHR Wins National Landscape AwardHats off to our Horticulture team once again! Hancock Village Apartments was one of 36 communities to gain national recognition from the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET).


PLANET's National Landscape Awards of Excellent Program reflect the association's commitment to creating and preserving the beauty of our landscape. PLANET member are committed to the highest standards in industry education, best practices, and business professionalism. The Award of Excellence was given to the Hancock Village horticulture team in recognition for their commitment to improving the environment by enhancing the landscaping at the property.  


The team has managed to maximize curb appeal despite the vast 80-acre landscape by planting over 5,000 tulip bulbs and pansies to provide spring color, more than 1,000 annuals for late spring and summer color, 300+ mums for fall color, and various displays of greens for holiday and winter interest. The variety of small flowering trees and shrubs that have been planted through the years have extended the season of bloom.


“We pride ourselves on creating a welcoming environment for our residents, and landscaping plays a major role” said Tim Dolan, Director of Horticulture.  “This is a core principal that our company founder, Ed Zuker, strongly believes in and supports.  I am very proud of the hard work and creativity of our Hancock Village horticulture team, headed by Grant Haggerty.  Their efforts greatly enhance the beauty and sustainability of the landscaping at the property for the enjoyment of our residents and neighbors in the area.”


We are constantly humbled by the outstanding work of our CHR family. A big BRAVO to the entire Hancock Village Horticulture Team!
