Environmental Designs Receives 2 National Awards of Excellence
Environmental Designs, a landscape company that serves clients throughout the Rocky Mountain Region, has been awarded two Awards of Excellence – Silver for Landscape Management and Silver for Design/Build by the National Association of Landscape Professionals.
The Design/Build award-winning project, Bell Summit at Flatirons, an apartment community in Broomfield, featured a striking landscape design for a previously underutilized courtyard. The new design included a large-scale ADA accessible fire pit with LED café lights in the center of the gathering area, two large grilling stations with ample room to cook and entertain, two separate seating areas with banquet tables that ensure the space can be used by different groups, and regionally appropriate plant material that anchors the space and softens the hard lines of this courtyard.
The second Silver-winning property, Centerra Metro District (CMD) in Fort Collins, features a complex mix of manicured cool season turf and native warm season areas with a specific plant palette designed to create an aesthetic that unites the suburban lifestyle with the surrounding natural environment. Environmental Designs was awarded the Landscape Management award based on the difficulty of the space and their attention to detail throughout the season.
Each year, the National Association Landscape Professionals Awards of Excellence recognizes exceptional landscape, lawn care, and interior plantscape design projects from around the nation. This year 128 awards were bestowed for maintenance, design/build and contracting projects.
“These two national awards are a significant milestone for Environmental Designs,” said Shawn Ryan, president of Environmental Designs. “We are very proud of the hard work that went into these two projects and strive every day to deliver award winning work to our clients.”
