SILVER AWARD

A petite backyard in Queens received a much needed makeover. After weeks of hard work the changes made to this humble backyard made a world of difference, almost unrecognizable from its previous state!

At the Banquet…..

Now, back to our “night out”. The evening was informative as well as fun. During the cocktail hour, we were able to view all the competitive portfolios with all the feedback from judges. As dinner was served, a wonderful slideshow and commentary was provided highlighting all of the winner’s projects with amazing before and after pictures as well as detailed construction pictures showing all of the challenges and intricate steps required to complete the incredible projects.

“As always, this year’s LINLA awards dinner proved to be an amazing celebration of the top landscape designers and their projects in our region. With design firms, suppliers, vendors and installers present, it was a fantastic evening to review and recognize the different styles, budgets and materials that go into each award winning design. I was very proud to be a part of such projects and look forward to all the future designs that may be recognized as well. Can’t wait for next year!”
