Awards recognize ELITE work of landscape companies

Posted

The landscaping at the Streets at SouthGlenn earned Centennial-based Sustainable Landscapes Colorado an ELITE Award for Use of Color-Judges’ Choice at the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado awards ceremony in March.

According to a news release, the company went above and beyond to create a landscape that would provide visitors a compelling “sense of arrival” year-round while also being suitable for Colorado’s dry climate.

The Elevating the Landscape Industry through Excellence Awards recognize professionalism and innovation, as well as business practices and original projects. The awards were presented March 27 at Stonebrook Manor in Thornton.

Sustainable Landscapes Colorado installed 400 hanging baskets and 40 containers (hand-watered every day late spring-fall by a crew of three), and approximately 13,000 square feet of annual and perennial beds watered with a Netafim irrigation system. The project also was a finalist for the ELITE Award for Use of Color-People’s Choice.

Designscapes Colorado earned an ELITE Award for Landscape Construction for its project An Eclectic Hideaway in Centennial. The project at a home in Centennial was inspired by adventures and fond memories the homeowners experienced around the world and in Colorado. The landscape is a family-friendly extended living space complete with a Bali-inspired spa, pool, and water feature combination as well as a rustic fire pit and an upper-level vegetable garden.

Two Parker projects earned ELITE Awards — the landscape contractor storage yard by BestYard.com won the award for innovation and Tom Westing, of Advance HOA, Brightview, won for customer service.

The Candelas project in Arvada earned the ELITE Award for Use of Color, People’s Choice, for Environmental Designs.

The ELITE Awards honor outstanding landscapes and personnel within the profession.

“They celebrate the commitment of companies and clients to create and maintain exceptional landscapes that support Colorado’s outdoor lifestyle,” ALCC Executive Director John McMahon said in the release.
