Anthem at Merrill Ranch

Merrill Ranch – Sun City, AZ

The Groundskeeper is thrilled to have been recently been awarded the landscape management contract for Anthem at Merrill Ranch in Florence, AZ. Merrill Ranch is a large master planned community designed to appeal to all generations.

Starting a large property like Merrill Ranch can be a challenge, but Project Manager Glen Killmer and Site Supervisor Rudy Maldonado were determined to make an immediate difference. Killmer stated, “Not only did we want to improve the appearance of the landscape, we wanted to improve the communication aspect as well. From the feedback that we have received from the Merrill Ranch property management team, it looks like we have had a successful start!”

An irrigation audit, a site specific fertilization program, and utilizing reel mowers in key locations have all been instrumental in improving the impact of the landscape for the community. Maldonado realizes this is just the start. “I’m very happy with our results so far, but I know we will become stronger partners with the community throughout the year. We are finishing up our Tree Inventory and working on other long range plans. I am really looking forward to continuing to show Merrill Ranch what our crews can do.”
