MERIT AWARD AMERICAN BEAUTY LANDSCAPING http://www.americanbeautylandscaping.com/ A year of planning and committee presentations resulted in this unique project at the Youngstown Country Club. The architectural materials, style and era of the building were all reflected in the design of this landscape. The symmetrical planting becomes more free form and naturalistic further away from the staircase. Newly added brick chips reflect the buildings colors and act as a secondary receiving area for curbside parking and room for snow in the winter. A designers intent can be ruined by improper maintenance, so detailed discussion with the clubs horticulturist is reflected years later in the appearance of the trees, shrubs and turf.
