ASLA 2018 Professional Award for Longwood Main Fountain Garden

09/2018 | Newsletter | West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture

Longwood Gardens' Main Fountain Garden has won an Honor Award in the General Design category of the 2018 ASLA Professional Awards.

"Brilliant. To do something so contemporary in the fountains, like the way the lighting works. That’s where I think the creativity comes in," the awards jury commented.

This year, ASLA received 374 entries of which 25 received awards. The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) recognizes the best of landscape architecture in the general design, analysis and planning, communications, research, and residential design categories from the United States and around the world.
