What's New


On December 4th the entire staff of Carroll County Landscape, Inc. took a deserved break for a day and attended the 20th Annual Vermont Greenscape Conference at the Fireside Inn & Suites in West Lebanon, NH. This has been an annual end of the season event for the staff of Carroll County Landscape, Inc. for some time now. The conference includes a trade show and educational lectures throughout the day. It’s also a great opportunity for our staff to enjoy the company of each other and partake in a great buffet that the inn provides each year.

Carroll County staff attends the January joint meeting of NHLA and NHPGA in Concord.

On January 16th Dave Alessandroni, Jan Bicknell, Tyrrell Nickerson, Shand Haughey and John Kenny attended the Joint Winter Meeting hosted annually by the New Hampshire Landscape Association, the New Hampshire Plant Growers Association and UNH Cooperative Extension. The meeting, trade show and educational sessions were held at the Marriott Grappone Center in Concord, NH. The day started at 8 am with informal roundtable discussions allowing attendees to share ideas with peers and see what’s new in the industry. Educational talks included business type sessions as well as topics on naturalistic planting design and managing and building healthy soils. The keynote speaker for the day was Delilah Onofrey, Director of Flower Power Marketing for the Suntory Collection, former editor of Greenhouse Grower Magazine and founder of America in Bloom.


Dave Alessandroni, Jan Bicknell and Tyrrell Nickerson made the trip into Boston on February 6th and 7th for the annual New England Grows convention at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. New England Grows is the largest and most popular commercial horticulture conference & exposition in the Northeast. The convention boasts attendance of 13,000 industry professionals and leading suppliers from across the country and around the world. Seminars run throughout the day providing the opportunity to learn about the latest design, technology and consumer trends. The convention is scheduled to run for three days however this year marked the first time in its history for the last day (Friday) to be cancelled because of the big Boston blizzard that was forecasted. Dave, Jan and Tyrrell retreated back to NH to beat the Boston portion of the storm and get prepared for what was the largest single snow event Wolfeboro would see all winter.

The next get together for our staff will be in March when we all attend the annual NHLA Spring Conference for landscapers. This will be held on March 13th at the NH Technical Institute in Concord NH. We annually attend this educational event. It is our last winter educational event before the landscaping season starts in April.

A skeleton crew of Shand Haughey and John Kenny have been busy this winter preparing equipment, trucks and our facility on route 28 for a smooth startup in April. Jan Bicknell our general manager and garden crew foreman has been working diligently on garden plans and ordering as well as revamping some of our administrative procedures. Tyrrell Nickerson has been busy enjoying his most favorite activity; snow skiing. We hear he has been honing his racing skills this winter while also serving as one of Cranmore’s very accomplished veteran ski instructors. Dave Alessandroni has been splitting his time between helping out at the shop and spending time in the office on preparing designs and budgets. We’ll be ready to be up and running as soon as the snow is off the ground.
