This May marks the 16th birthday for Outside Productions! To celebrate we are looking back on some of our most memorable projects and events in the last 16 years! 

Outside Productions has completed work both throughout Florida and internationally in the Bahamas, Edmonton Canada, China, Jamaica, Russia, and multiple Caribbean islands.  It has been a big year for OPi with our office beginning work on a couple projects in the Sarasota area and one home on Siesta Key.  We have multiple homes under construction in Port Royal and The Remington high-rise in Pelican Bay's Bay Colony is under construction.  It's going to be a busy summer, but we can't wait to see all of these projects under way!

Below are some photos of projects we've completed in the past 16 years. Thanks to everyone who has been along for the journey- our office looks forward to the next 16 years!

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!

This weekend was full of excitement for one of our OPi projects, Greyhawk at Golf Club of the Everglades!  The Grand Opening was Sunday from 1pm to 3pm, but Outside Productions got a sneak peak Friday afternoon.

The entry sign features an Italian, porcelain-wood tile, a shallow water feature with fountain, and beautiful Bougainvillea vines draping over the sidewalls.  Installation of the Bougainvillea was in process during our visit, but the vines now span both sides of the sign. 

 

 

Team members Courtney, Katherine, and Lindsay take a closer look at the entry sign. 

 

The Model Row plant palette features many native plants and palms to mesh with the existing scenery of the development.  European Fan Palms, Paurotis Palms, and large Oak Trees were planted along with Zamia, Muhly, Fakahatchee and Quad Grasses, Viburnum, and Wart Fern.

2015 was a big year!  Pat traveled throughout Florida, including Lakeland and Boca Grande, for new community and residential projects.  Outside Productions also saw the completition of the entry at Winding Cypress and Greyhawk at Golf Club of the Everglades.  While those projects are ongoing, they are progressing quickly and will continue into 2016. 

In August our youngest, and furriest, employee Dakota joined the team and brought new skills, like fetching and long naps, to our team.  In October Outside Productions celebrated the arrival of Angelica, the daughter of landscape architect Andrea.  Andrea is back part-time and will rejoin full-time after the new year!  In November, we brought on a new team member, Vinnie and licensed landscape architect. 

To celebrate the accomplishments of 2015 and the upcoming holidays, OPi had a holiday dinner at the Turtle Club in Naples.  With feet in the sand and watching the sun set over the ocean, we had a wonderful time laughing and recapping this exciting year.

Outside Prodcutions had a great time celebrating the completion of Corkscrew Shores, a Pulte Homes Community in Estero!  Outside Prodcutions designed the entry signage, overall community planting, Amenity Center pool, hardcsape, and fire pit area, and model row. 

 

The pool has a beautiful beach entry, water bowl features in the center, and a faux turf and paver sundeck overlooking the lake! 

The open air cabanas on either end provide great views of the pool area and lake.  Behind the West cabana are two gas fire pits fits with direct lake views.

Courtney, Katherine, and Lindsay check our the faux turf deck and take in the beautiful views of the lake during sunset.
