LARKSVILLE, PA, 04/17/12- PLANET member Grasshopper Lawns Inc., will show their commitment to caring for our nation’s green spaces with their involvement in a national PLANET event, the PLANET Day of Service. This event takes places every year on or around Earth Day in an effort to demonstrate environmental devotion and humanitarianism by giving back to our individual communities.

With more than 3,500 member companies and affiliates, these firms and their employees represent more than 100,000 green industry professionals.

This year, Grasshopper Lawns Inc. will give back to their community by servicing a local soccer field, Gordon Ave Soccer Field, in Wilkes Barre, PA, free of charge. The event is scheduled for Friday, April 20th at 9am, where Mayor Thomas M. Leighton will make an appearance. “The purpose of this event is to rejuvenate areas where we live, work, and play, to plow the way as environmental leaders- it’s just the right thing to do. We look forward to Day of Service every year,” commented Michael Kravitsky IV, co-owner of Grasshopper Lawns Inc. The family owned and operated business has participated in the event ever since it began in 2005. Kravitsky says, “We have two or three guys go out to the site to fertilize and aerate the lawn; they enjoy it as much as I do because this is their hometown as well. They realize the importance and value of such a thing.”
