Stillman Landscape Wins Awards at Worcester Flower & Patio Show

 Sterling, Mass. Stillman Landscape walked away with several top awards at the recent Flower & Patio Show, held Feb. 27-March 1 in Worcester’s DCU Center. According to Stillman Landscape principal, James Stillman, the professional landscape design firm won first place for the best water feature in a major display, as well as second place in the waterfall building contest and second place for overall major landscape display.

 ”This show really let us put our best design and landscaping ideas forward,” said Stillman. “With a 20′x20′ display area, we had to focus on the most creative yet functional design that could work in just about anyone’s yard.” According to Stillman, the award-winning water feature included a natural stone watercourse with an 8000-gallons-per-hour, closed circulation water system and a blend of indigenous plants and cultivated garden varietals.

 ”My philosophy is to create water features that look completely natural and will blend perfectly with the scale of the space within which we have to work,” added Stillman. “It’s important that the water feature work in harmony with the rest of the yard or garden.”

 Stillman Landscape also won second place in the water fall building contest, which challenged contestants to design and build a pondless waterfall in six hours using the same amount and type of materials. “We actually used only half the materials that were available because we wanted to emphasize how creative we can be for clients without breaking their budget,” commented Stillman. “We included a combination patio of pavers and stone with a unique, 45-degree-angle band of retaining wall blocks, an antique millstone fountain, and a waterfall using a combination of pumps that created a beautiful babbling brook.”

 Examples of Stillman Landscape’s award-winning designs can be found on the company’s new website, www.stillmanlandscape.com.
