Bonick Landscaping is proud to announce it is the winner of the prestigious 2016 National Association of Landscape Professionals GRAND Award of Excellence for construction and installation.

This residential project, designed by Hocker Design Group, posed complex construction and installation challenges, which is why they turned to Bonick Landscaping to execute their vision.

A cobblestone courtyard with a dancing deck fountain was built. On two sides of the fountain, an angled wall of structural concrete was added and faced with large polished black granite slabs.

Natural stone slabs create a meandering path around the lawn (left). An exposed aggregate walkway leads to an outdoor sculpture room. Large magnolias that were craned in provide privacy from the neighboring property while creating a natural backdrop to the sculpture (right).
