ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- Hundreds of professional landscapers came together Monday to beautify the grounds at the Arlington National Cemetery.

Renewal and Remembrance is an annual event and day of service organized by the National Association Landscape Professionals.

Many of the volunteers are from all across the nation and are veterans. The grounds have a full-time dedicated crew, so these landscapers come together to work on special projects.

The event is a special tribute to the service and sacrifice so many have made for the county. The volunteers want to ensure the resting place is one to be proud of.
