Ryan Empey of Tropical Gardens Landscape in Sarasota, Fla., is a member of a group of professionals who are FNGLA Certified Horticulture Professionals (FCHPs).
This designation was earned by Ryan Empey after an exam that measures horticulture knowledge and professional skills through an extensive written exam. In demonstrating his skills in many areas such as plant identification, disease and insect control, landscape design/management and proper irrigation, the professional designation of FCHP was earned.
Established by the Florida Nursery, Growers & Landscape Association (FNGLA), the FNGLA Certified Horticulture Professional Program has been administered since the mid-80s. The program was designed to increase professionalism among Florida’s growers, landscape professionals and retail employees. This is the industry’s only standard for measuring horticulture knowledge and has been recognized by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and all five water management districts. The program builds upon Florida Green Industries Best Management Practices and Florida friendly principles.
“When dealing with horticulture professionals, people want someone who has the professional know-how to solve horticulture problems,” says Ben Bolusky, FNGLA Executive Vice President. “Individuals who take steps toward certification develop the background needed to answer consumer questions.”
Tropical Gardens Landscape has been in business since 2007 with a specialty in Landscape Maintenance. Its services include Landscape Design and Installation, HOA Grounds Maintenance, Irrigation Maintenance and Repair, Sod Installation and Water Feature
