Special to The Times
According to Margaret Bailey of the Ponchatoula Gardenettes’ garden club Genesis committee, the Genesis award is presented to commercial properties that have put extra effort into their landscaping. Grass Masters, 39509 SW I-55 Service Road, being a landscape business, certainly fit the bill.
Their entrance has a beautifully arranged assortment of caladiums, roses, cypress trees, boxwood, ligustrum, muhly grass, and Dianthus.
Owners Brandon Lutman, Randy Lutnam and Ben Dutruch were present for the presentation picture. Other employees attending included Jimmy Cox, Baret Vuter, Taylor Denham, Josh Johnson, Britnay Gulis, Bailie Savoy, Lauren Patti and Joe Wonder. Gardenettes present were Margaret Bailey, Anna Poland, Ellen Pusey, Libbie Barron and Liz Anderson. Gardenettes are members of District VI – Louisiana Garden Club Federation Inc., Deep South Garden Clubs Inc. and National Garden Clubs Inc.
