Yard Solutions wins
statewide awards
Yard Solutions was recently honored with two Merit Awards in the Ohio Nursery & Landscape Association's (ONLA) 2009 Landscape Awards Program. ONLA is a non-profit trade association representing Ohio's nursery, garden center and landscape industry.
Yard Solutions was honored with a Merit Award for the $25,000 to $75,000 residential installation category for an existing Upper Arlington residence. The garden renovation and expansion included a new bluestone paver patio, decorative wrought iron elements, restoration of a water feature, creation of a private garden off the master bedroom, decorative and service lighting, and installation of fragrant and colorful perennial and specialty plantings. The project resulted in a more usable and much more enjoyable outdoor area that includes spaces for dining, relaxing, and enjoying the local bird and urban wildlife population. Steve Graham of Yard Solutions was the project designer.
A newly built Worthington Hills residence earned the Merit Award for the $75,000 to $250,000 residential installation category. Yard Solutions installed the project in collaboration with Landscape Architect Sue Jacobs Grant. The project transformed a new home site with a steep slope and tangled thicket of woods into multi-dimensional outdoor spaces for relaxation, dining and active play. Special features include seat walls to retain slopes, installation of large comfortable steppers to transition between areas, and creation of a meadow-like campground near the creek.
