March 4, 2013
Green Bay Botanical Garden and Landscape Associates are honored to have been selected to receive the highest level Gold Award from the Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association for the construction of the King Shade Garden and Jenquine Pavilion & Overlook Garden completed in 2010.
There were many challenges with this project such as re-routing a main path to ensure ADA compliance, protecting several large oak trees that now shade the gardens and the removal of elements of the storm water collection system due to sandy soil conditions. Accolades go to owner Gerry Andrews, John Lecher and many other staff at Landscape Associates for their innovative ideas and insights during the creation of these stunning gardens.
“Gerry Andrews and Landscape Associates have been a partner for many years and truly understand that this Garden is a treasured place within our community. Our partnership in the design and construction of the King Shade & Jenquine Gardens has brought additional beauty and serenity to the Garden and to our entire community,” says Green Bay Botanical Garden’s Executive Director, Susan Garot.
Through every season, these gardens inspire and engage visitors. Spring brings a sea of over 10,000 spring bloomers including over 6,000 daffodils. Summer and fall celebrate the growth of over 5,750 perennials, including over 750 hostas and over 150 trees and shrubs in the two gardens. Winter brings quiet beauty highlighting the hardscape and structural elements of this unique project including over 100 tons of boulders.
Truly a collaborative effort with Landscape Associates, the King Shade Garden and Jenquine Pavilion & Overlook Garden are award winners by any standard.
