  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) April 16, 2016 - Scenic Landscaping was chosen as a finalist in the Westchester Magazine Best of Home Design Awards for the 2016 season. Westchester Home proudly celebrated Westchester County's best interior designers, architects, and building professionals on April 7th at the Emelin Theatre in Mamaroneck, NY. The finalists in ten categories came to celebrate being chosen with their fellow finalists, the judges, and their coworkers and family.

    Categories included Best Kitchen, Best Use of Color, Best Use of a Small space, Best Living Space, Best Landscape Design, and more. All of the categories related to beautifying a home, honoring the talented designers and architects on the best of their best. Landscape Design was a new category to the Westchester Design Awards, and everyone there was excited to have it included, understanding that a great landscaping enhances the value of the property as well as the level of appreciation and enjoyment of the homeowners.

    On the night of the award show, Scenic Landscaping was announced as the winner in the new Best Landscape Design Category for work on a residential client's property in Pleasantville, NY.

    Scenic Landscaping was originally hired as landscape architects for the job and then were brought on to build it. Scenic Landscaping also worked with the builder to lay out the hardscaping and provide adequate drainage for the property.

    The team was able to facilitate erosion control for the property by providing landscape channel drains and planting native ornamental grasses, shrubs, and trees along hillsides.

    The team planted wet-tolerant perennials and grasses for troubled areas. They also provided screening for the property with mixed evergreens, native shrubs, and ornamental grasses. This helped to keep the deer away from coming into the property.

    Due to a high water table, the first pool that was constructed actually had to be demolished due to the water pressure. As the team carved into a mountain, they used large slab boulders dug into the earth to retain the fill. Terracing steps also helped control the water issue. An upper channel drain system further alleviated pressure on the walls and for the new pool.
