Clarence Davids wins a GOLD award!

Clarence Davids & Company is proud to announce that our garden at the 2014 Chicago Flower & Garden Show received the 2015 Illinois Landscape Contractors Association Excellence in Landscape Gold Award. Our garden appropriately named “Your Style, Your Garden,” was designed to follow the mission of the show to educate, motivate, and inspire gardeners of all ages by showing endless options for outdoor spaces. House facades were constructed to represent different styles of architecture and provided the framework for the garden design. The styles ranged from a traditional approach, to a more relaxed style, to a backyard that extended from the perceived interior space outdoors. A parkway was included as part of an urban component to the garden. The backyard space was divided into four different gathering spaces; the outdoor kitchen, dining area, fire pit, and pond.

This lush garden arose from the blank, empty floor of Navy Pier to inspire show visitors to evaluate their garden space and make ‘green’ choices regardless of their design style preference.

Clarence Davids wins Excellence in Landscape Merit Award!

We are proud to announce that the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association (ILCA) awarded us the Landscape in Excellence Merit Award (Residential Construction). Many thanks to Stephen Borden, Alan Watkins, Steve Bos, Jack Bos, Abbie Lydon, Roberto Castel, and Rafael Segura who helped make this project a success!

The Palmisano family presented our design team with the challenge of updating the landscape of their contemporary home built in the 1980s. The design includes both a new paver driveway and a new patio in the backyard. The final design was able to enhance the unique architecture of the home and accomplish the desires of the Palmisano family.

Enjoy the pictures of this award-winning project!

The new driveway includes pavers of different textures and colors to make the space feel more like an entry rather than a driveway.
