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.
