by Chanté McKowan, LC/DBM PHOTOS: ASSOCIATED LANDSCAPE CONTRACTORS OF COLORADO (EXCEPT WHERE NOTED) Above and Right Award: Design/Build Over $200k Contractor: Environmental Designs, Inc. & Marpa Design Studio Environmental Designs, Inc. and Marpa Design Studio worked on the Black Bear project in the city of Boulder. The client wanted their home to feel like a resort retreat, a place to experience the outdoors in privacy. The landscape was constructed to comple- ment the home's contemporary architecture. The project also satisfied the green-point requirements of Boulder, such as planting shade trees and reserving existing trees, and installing organic soil amendments in permeable areas. The engineered concrete and steel walls, along with precise boulder placement, help to retain soil and display water-efficient plantings. L LC/DBM supports state landscape contractors associations and their efforts to serve, protect and educate their members in the landscape industry: providing legislation advocacy, educational resources and networking opportunities, and administering programs such as awards presentations that honor and promote their members. One such example is the ELITE Awards put on by the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado, whose notification to LC/DBM of their winners, including those in hardscape- based categories, coincided with the selection of material for this Hardscapes issue. So we are proud to present them here, and invite all other state associations to submit their award-winning projects to be considered for inclusion in future issues. 40 LC DBM in Best Hardscapes Colorado State Associations in Action
