Never mow more than one third of new growth at a time. Leave short clippings on the lawn after you mow. They will decompose quickly into healthy compost.
In 1986 the Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association (WLCA) Metropolitan Milwaukee Chapter was named as a beneficiary in the estate of the late Ronald J. Klokner, a past-president and charter member of the Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association. The bequest was made with the expressed intent to establish a scholarship fund for students actively pursuing a career in the landscape industry.
The goal of this scholarship fund is to support students who have demonstrated a successful track record of academic achievement in landscape or horticultural related studies.
Scholarship Eligibility Criteria:
Applicants should be:
- A Wisconsin resident who intends to live and work in the State of Wisconsin after graduation.
- A full-time student attending a college or technical school.
- Enrolled in an accredited four-year degree program or two-year certificate program in horticulture or a landscape related area.
In addition, an applicant must have successfully completed at least one semester in a two year academic program or one year in a four year academic program. Scholarships are awarded in the amount of $250.00 to $2,000.00 and are paid directly to the college or technical school the recipient is attending for the student's tuition and fees.
