"All of us in the Department of Athletics at Iowa State University greatly appreciate Country Landscapes' willingness to help us maintain and enhance the All-American Grove," ISU athletics director Bruce Van De Velde said. "Their outstanding support of the All-American Grove allows us to recognize our Cyclone All-Americans and provide our fans and alumni a chance to celebrate the contributions of these great student-athletes."
Country Landscapes joins forces with Iowa State
Country Landscapes Inc., founded in 1981 by Rhett Faaborg and Jim Mason, developed a simple philosophy and goal of providing unsurpassed quality in landscape design and construction services. This philosophy has guided the implementation of over 10,000 landscapes, ranging from small residential projects to multi-million dollar public projects.
"As ISU alums and Cyclone athletics supporters, Rhett and I are excited to be given the opportunity to assist the athletics department with our knowledge and expertise in a field we love," Mason said. "I'm looking forward to the challenge of helping develop the All-American Grove into something fans will be excited about in years to come."
The All-American Grove was established in 1992 with over 310 trees planted around Jack Trice Stadium to recognize the achievements Iowa State's All-American student-athletes. Brass plaques were added to each tree, noting the name, sport and year(s) these student-athletes earned national honors. Since that time, some trees have been replaced and plaques have been damaged or removed, making the All-American Grove less visible to the public.
Over the next several years, the Iowa State athletics department is committed to updating and providing the future development and design of the All-American Grove, which will enhance the overall beauty of Jack Trice Stadium.
