The Master's Lawn Care is pleased to announce that two of our team leaders, Jeff Neuman and Mike McGuire, have recently achieved a new landscape industry recognition – Florida Water Star Accredited Professional. The Florida Water Star program offers professionals accreditation in Gainesville landscaping and Gainesville irrigation installation to help ensure a more sustainable environment through water conservation.

The program is offered in partnership with the Florida Nursery Growers and Landscape Association (FNGLA), which coordinates the professional training and testing. Developed by the St. Johns River Water Management District and launched in 2006, Florida Water Star encourages water efficiency in household appliances, plumbing fixtures, irrigation systems and landscapes. The voluntary certification program is available throughout Florida and is administered by the St. Johns, Southwest, and South Florida water management districts and the Florida Green Building Coalition.

The Florida Water Star accreditation program’s goal is to provide advanced education for practitioners in the landscape and irrigation fields that will result in sustainable project designs and installations. Jeff and Mike each received two different types of accreditation: Florida Water Star Accredited Irrigation Professional and Florida Water Star Accredited Landscape Professional.

Accreditation is available for sprinkler professionals, landscaping professionals, and licensed landscape architects in the areas of irrigation design and installation and landscape design and installation.For more information about Florida Water Star or the AP program, visit
