World Landscape Architecture Month

April is World Landscape Architecture Month, a worldwide celebration of the practice of landscape architecture!  Focusing on how landscape architecture is present in our daily lives, landscape architects are called to take photos of their works all month.  Varying from golf course design, to commercial design, resorts, urban design, residential landscapes, and more, Landscape Architecture Month celebrates it all!
Pictured above, ground is breaking at one of our large community projects, Lakewood National in Sarasota.  The project with include: 18 hole golf course, various entries, a beautiful clubhouse and amenity center, and an over 500-home community with pocket parks.  During a site visit yesterday, project managers were able to get a tour of the whole site and see first-hand the moving of dirt happening on-site.   While the project still has a long time until completion, we are excited to be a part of such a great project!

As a part of World Landscape Architecture Month, our office has participated in events hosted by the Southwest Florida chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (FLASLA).  Last Thursday we joined other local professionals at The Centre Bar in Bonita Springs, to celebrate the birthday of Frederick Law Olmstead, the father of landscape architecture.  Last Saturday an Arbor Day celebration was hosted at Riverside Park in Bonita Springs.  The FLASLA booth had a beautiful showcase of plants as well as information about landscape architecture.   

While we think every month should be Landscape Architecture month, it was a great month of celebrations.  May will mark 16 years of business for Outside Productions Inc.  To celebrate we will be participating in a number of events throughout May and June including: a Cinco de Mayo event, an OPi birthday party, and a Chili cook-off!  Stay tuned for updates and photos from our Summer-long celebration!
