Bergen County, NJ – Jacobsen Landscape Design & Construction has been awarded a 2013 National Landscape Award of Excellence from the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) for a landscape design & build project in Ridgewood, NJ. The award is presented annually to professional landscape firms who demonstrate a consistent use of quality materials and workmanship for environmental improvement.
The busy homeowners desired a beautiful outdoor oasis in their backyard that would provide space for relaxation and recreation for them and their six children. The property features a curvilinear pool with waterfalls, a reflective koi pond, a functional outdoor kitchen, a bluestone patio for entertaining, and a useable green area for recreational play. A spacious, shaded seating area also provides the adults a spot to relax while still be able to engage with children in the pool. A variety of flowering plant material was also used to soften the hardscape areas and add interest, color, and texture.
“The challenges of this project were significant,” says Mark Milidantri, the lead landscape designer for the property. “The entire project needed to be completed within a two-month timeframe since the only access we had to the backyard was through the yard of an elementary school.” Nonetheless, the job was completed on time and within budget as a result of careful project management and coordination of sophisticated drainage and pool installation.
“I am proud of the team’s hard work in completing this challenging and rewarding project,” says Glenn Jacobsen, president and founder of Jacobsen Landscape. “We’re honored to again win this prestigious award for one of our landscape design/build projects. Most of all, I’m delighted that the homeowners’ expectations have been exceeded and the family has a versatile, outdoor living space to enjoy for many years to come.”
