‘Best in Show’ Winners

Two decades of Southeastern Flower Show and Atlanta Home Show

Unique Environmental Landscapes took the top award for medium size booths at the Atlanta Home & Garden Show held at the Cobb Galleria March 20-22, 2015. Unique’s eye-catching garden was a popular spot all three days of the show, attracting the attention of landscape design/install seeking residential patrons. Highlights of the garden included a custom built natural waterfall pumping 4800 gallons of water per hour, a wood burning fireplace, Coral Bark Japanese Maple which was beautifully accented with uplights. A good deal of the plant material in the garden was selected from the Southern Living Plant Collection, a favorite in Unique’s plant palette for the Atlanta landscapes. To finish off the garden, Unique placed beautiful (and comfortable) furniture from Casual Image on Belgrade’s Lafitte Rustic Slab paver patio so patrons could picture themselves enjoying this beautiful landscape garden.

Wesley Woods at Emory Hospital Therapeutic Garden Project

In early July, we will break ground on a unique and revolutionary courtyard garden at Emory University’s Alzheimer’s and Dementia unit. The courtyard consists of a tranquil and soothing bubbling urn fountain, pergola, planter boxes, patient assisting handrails, a very precise and specimen plant pallet, rain cistern with drip irrigation and other unique elements.

These features have been ‘uniquely’ designed for a serene and peaceful environment for the Alzheimer and Dementia patients, as well as to follow very specific measures to ensure the safety of the patients. For example, every piece of material used on this job has to be immovable, thus protecting the patients from self harm or harm from others. Even the stones used for the fountain area must be affixed to the ground. The specific plant pallet, while being specimen plants, also must be non-poisonous and edible for safety from ingestion. The pergola will be built with un-reachable height, yet designed to provide a certain percentage of shade. All of our projects are unique in their own elements and as you follow this project with us, you will see our team create an amazing serene garden.
