Members of our office had a great time Saturday participating in the American Society of Landscape Architects Habitat for Humanity Build Day.  They worked with other local professionals on landscape installation for homes in the Fort Myers area.  Orignally scheduled to work on one home for the entire morning, the group finished installation by 9:30 (WOW!) and decided to tackle another home in the area.  Andrea and Courtney got the opportunity to meet one of the future homeowners, take a tour of the homes, and help plant Mahogany trees, Hibiscus, and privacy shrubs for both homes.  While it was a bit steamy Saturday morning, the gang walked away with a lot of laughs and a great experience.   Thanks to the Southwest Florida American Society of Landscape Architects for organizing such a great day of service!

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!
