R. P. Marzilli & Co. Wins Two Environmental Improvement Awards

NOVEMBER 1, 2012 – We are pleased to announce the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) honored two of our projects with Environmental Improvement Awards at the annual Green Industry Conference in Louisville, Kentucky.
The Ocean Overlook Project received the Grand Award for Residential Landscape Construction.

The project was designed by Gregory Lombardi Design and the general contractor was Columbia Construction.  This North Shore site has a vertical change of 115 feet and over 400 feet of ledge sloping to the Atlantic Ocean.   The home and landscape has jaw-dropping views that can be enjoyed from multiple vantage points.  This complex project includes several walls and terraces using native stone and boulders; outdoor fireplace; granite-framed vegetable garden, pergola, spa,  indoor/outdoor pool with retractable roof, lawns and perennial gardens.

The Seaside Retreat was awarded the Residential Landscape Management Merit Award.  The landscape of this 18-acre South Shore estate is managed by our Maintenance Division.  The property includes an orchard, wildflower meadow, koi pond, vegetable garden, pool area and picnic pavilion.  A boardwalk leads to the beach only 200 yards away.  Managing any property so close to the Atlantic Ocean is challenging, and the various yet integrated landscapes are beautifully maintained by our team.
