2024 Employee Calendar Photography Contest

Each month, B. H. Graning Landscapes, Inc. employees submit photos from company jobsites or properties for the opportunity to win $100/month awarded annually at the company Christmas party.

Where do employees submit their jobsite photography?

If you are a B. H. Graning Landscapes Employee and wish to submit photos, please visit www.bhglandscapes.com/calendar-contest.

Landscape orientation for photograph submission is preferred as this is a printed calendar. Portrait orientated photography may have to be cropped prior to printing resulting in significant loss of photo content. Please do not edit or reduce the size of your photos prior to submitting or you may risk submitting a photo that is unusable for print quality. If you are having issues submitting, contact Jessica Graning at bhgl.marketing@bhglandscapes.com.

Vote for your favorite photography in each month below.

When submissions have been verified and posted, you can vote for that month’s entrees using the form below.

Voting Closes June 5th!

2022 BHGL Employee Calendar Contest

Each month, B. H. Graning Landscapes, Inc. employees have the opportunity to submit photographs they take while on jobsites or at company properties for the possibility to win $100. In the fall of the year, photos are selected and sent in for print. Winners are announced each year at the company Christmas party and are presented with their cash prize.

Note to BHGL Employees

Due to this being a printed calendar, there is a preference for landscape orientation for photographs. If you do submit portrait orientated photography, they will have to be cropped to be printed which may remove up to a third of the picture.

2022 Perfect Touch Scholarship Champion

Congrats to John Riddle, 2022 Perfect Touch Champion

B. H. Graning Landscapes & Landscape Supply would like to announce a new Perfect Touch Champion, John Riddle.

Some facts provided by our champion:

  • I am a Sophomore here at Western.
  • I am a Natural Resource Management major with a concentration in forestry.
  • I’m from a remote village in interior Alaska call Galena. Galena is only accessible by bush plane or snowmachine and is located 50 south of the artic circle.
  • I have 4 family members. Three of which are alumni of WCU and the fourth will be a freshman here this upcoming semester.
  • I came to be a part of the WCU community because it runs in my blood. Not only have all my family members attended WCU, but the southern Appalachians is my ancestral home ground.
  • I hope to one day get a job with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) or the US Forest Service. While I’m still unsure on what my career will be long term, I plan on working as a Wildland Firefighter for a few seasons after college (I got officially certified to be a Type II Wildland Firefighter today).
  • I was on my high school’s basketball team for all four years as the starting center, but before the competition, I hadn’t touched a basketball in nearly 2 years.

"I’d like to say thank you to B.H. Graning Landscape and Supplies for giving me the opportunity to participate and also for helping me, a broke college kid, out immensely with some much-needed cash."

~John Riddle, 2022 Perfect Touch Champion

B. H. Graning Landscapes & Landscape Supply is happy to help! Thank you for your participation.

Employee Fall Fair

Friday, October 29th, we had our Employee Fall Fair.

This event gave our employees the opportunity to speak with representatives from Edward Jones about our 401K, learn more about our health insurance offerings, and order boots and winter wear from the CINTAS boot truck. There was hot cider and fall snacks. We threw a little fun in with corn hole and a pumpkin carving contest. Tyler Applegate presented as DJ and provided some upbeat tunes.

  • Eddie Cedillo – 1st Place with his etching of a dozer and a flower.
  • Zach Demeester – 2nd Place with his B.H. Graning Logo Tree
  • Office Ladies (Denise Waltz, Jessica Sjollema, Madelyn Gentry, and Melissa Mathis) – 3rd place with their incredible character.

We had drawings and giveaways and put Ben in the “hot seat” with trivia. If he answered wrong, he received a pumpkin’ gut pie in the face.

It was a great way to give our employees a little break and find out more about benefits.
