Award-winning landscape: Environmental Designs recognized 3 times by NALP
Our list of award-winning landscapes keeps getting longer! Each year, the National Association Landscape Professionals (NALP) Awards of Excellence recognizes exceptional landscape, lawn care, and interior plantscape design. This year, 110 awards were given for maintenance, design/build, and contracting projects. And we’re happy to announce we won three awards, including two gold, for our work in 2020.
“Two Forms” Wins Gold for Landscape Design/Build
Our first award-winning landscape had fallen into a state of despair. In fact, due to high sun exposure, the yard was almost unusable during the day. So we created a more comfortable space by refurbishing and refreshing it. We also created various spots for entertainment and seating while showcasing a steel sculpture. And because the clients are art collectors, a site-specific sculpture called “Two Forms” is showcased in the courtyard. Meanwhile, protection from the sun creates a functional environment perfect for dining, a fire feature, an outdoor kitchen, a hot tub, and a pool. To see the full project portfolio, click here.
“Cascading Stones” Wins Gold for Landscape Design/Build
The second of our award-winning landscapes features boulders, lush planting pockets, a sparkling swimming pool with a natural diving board, and a fire feature. The client wanted a space to entertain and enjoy the uninterrupted view of the Front Range and the Boulder Flatirons. To see more photos of this project, click here.
“Dawson-Lear” Wins Bronze for Landscape Installation Category
While the third of our award-winning landscapes won bronze for landscape installation and contracting. This client wanted a contemporary landscape that matches the design of the house. And because this yard was very steep and unusable, the client also wanted to create a flat, terraced space with privacy from the home next door. All while including a few different areas for activities such as a fire feature, dining area, lawn, and hammock space. Click here to see the rest of the project photos.
