Chackbay Nursery & Landscaping Awarded Contract
for Tarpon Rodeo Pavilion
July 10th, 2009
Grand Isle, LA: There will be oleanders blooming again just in time for the 2009 International Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo. Chackbay Nursery & Landscaping, Inc. was awarded the contract to install new landscaping and irrigation located at the event’s main pavilion.
The project consists of installation of a new entrance and replacement of damaged plants and irrigation systems due to Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. The repairs will update the location where many of the awards ceremonies, for the three day fishing event, will be held.
This project is yet another of the many Chackbay has undertaken across Southern Louisiana in order to rebuild after recent storms from less than one year ago. “It’s an honor to have been selected to provide the new entrance to this high profile event, said Ed Ledet, project superintendant for Chackbay Nursery & Landscaping.” “You can certainly see that Grand Isle is coming back and it is great to be a part of it.”
Chackbay Nursery Adds MulchMule to Improve Efficiency
February 8th, 2008
Chackbay Nursery is committed to equipping our crews with the most efficient equipment and tools available. In keeping with that commitment, we recently acquired the Mulch Mule, a productivity tool that provides much higher efficiency in the installation of mulch. Beginning this Spring, we will use the Mulch Mule for filling wheelbarrows with mulch in lieu of hand loading with shovels. This saves our crews a great deal of time. We will continue with our meticulous hand dumping and spreading so that your finished installation will still be neat, clean, and precise.

Chackbay has installed the landscaping for 48 home sites in a community being built through a partnership with our local Bayou Region Habitat for Humanity and the broader based Habitat International.
