SUNCREST GARDENS
http://www.suncrestgardens.com/
Suncrest Gardens was selected to implement this high profile urban garden
project in downtown Akron. Corten steel retaining walls accommodate
handicap accessible switchback ramps. Grasses and perennials native to
Northeastern Ohio are used throughout the site. Informal seating, performance
areas and outdoor art galleries were incorporated in this landscape. The soft
plantings add interest and texture to the gardens while softening the hardscape

KGK GARDENING AND DESIGN CORPORATION
http://www.kgkgardening.com/
The founder of Little Tykes and Hudson resident, Tom Murdough, along with
several community minded individuals set out the build a new sports stadium for
the Hudson Schools.  KGK designed and built two memorials on the stadium
grounds and created a cohesive connection between the two. A veteran’s
memorial would honor all the Hudsonites who sacrificed their lives while serving
our country and the Scott Malson garden to honor a lifelong resident. 5 massive
boulders represent the Civil War, World Wars, Vietnan, Iraq Conflict and
Peacetime Duty. Bronze plaques on the boulders list the names of the Hudson
veterans who sacrifised their lives for our freedom.
