“Sustainability is such an important topic for everyone today and at the core of this initiative is a conviction that water is a precious natural resource to be preserved and protected,” said Richard Restuccia, Director of Water Management Solutions at ValleyCrest, who notes the water blog arose from conversations with customers who said they appreciated and valued the company’s deep water management expertise. “ValleyCrest Takes On is an interactive resource for the commercial property industry to tap into ValleyCrest’s knowledge, expertise and best water management practices gleaned from more than six decades as America’s landscaper that’s continually being enhanced with innovative advancements in technology.”
