CLEVELAND, Ohio — Project EverGreen announces the completion of its latest “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.” project with weed removal, soil aeration and fertilizer applications to the baseball and softball fields at Fair Oaks Park in Marietta, Georgia.

Working in partnership with the Cobb County Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department (PRCA), Project EverGreen and ValleyCrest Landscape Companies delivered much-needed turf management services to restore and renew

22,000 square feet of turf at the park’s ball diamonds.

The renovated baseball and softball fields are used by an estimated 5,000 local Marietta residents and families of all ages that are participating in community church leagues, youth and adult teams, family reunions and other community groups.

The renovation project consisted of a series of sequential services and material applications from mid-May to early June. ValleyCrest donated the organic materials, equipment and personnel to make the renovations.

“Our mission is to preserve and enhance green spaces where we live, work and play,” says Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “Parks, sports fields and recreational play areas are vital to healthy, thriving communities. One of the ways we demonstrate our commitment is by mobilizing generous local landscaping contractor volunteers, like ValleyCrest Companies to donate their time and talents to make these landscaping projects possible.”
