Clarence Davids & Company is proud to announce that our work at Harbor Point Condominiums in Chicago was awarded a Gold Award from the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association.
Harbor Point Condominiums is a 54-story residential building located adjacent to Lake Michigan near Navy Pier. The landscape contractor’s objective is to provide a beautiful setting for the many residents, visitors, and employees that visit the building each day. In order to maintain the building’s landscape at a high level of excellence, numerous team members, including landscape designers, maintenance and construction supervisors, and an account representative help ensure that the site is always colorful, welcoming and interesting to view.
The maintenance program includes the mowing and fertilizing of the lawns, watering and fertilizing of seasonal flowers, pruning trees and shrubs, power edging the sidewalks, and bed edging the tree rings and planting beds. The landscape design team selects plants that provide an abundance of color and texture in addition to plants that tolerate the extremely windy conditions near the lake. Spring is welcomed with the blooming of over 10,000 bulbs planted throughout the beds. Summer plantings consist of over 6,000 annuals enhancing the drives, entry, and patio spaces. Autumn is ushered in with thousands of chrysanthemums and cool season flowers, which ensures that the property is surrounded with bright colors well into November. The winter months are celebrated with over 75,000 LED lights and an eighteen-foot Christmas tree anchored in front of the building. The entire contractor team takes great pride in creating an urban landscape environment that provides a dynamic visitor experience year-round.
