The first of our Gold Award winners from the 2019 Landscape Awards of Excellence is The Peninsula.
It is a privilege for us to be a partner to this beautiful lakefront community and we're pleased to bring national recognition to the tireless work of the Yellowstone Landscape Professionals who help make this such a special place for residents to call home.
Below is the award entry narrative summary and photos that were submitted of the project:
The Peninsula is a lakefront community located in Cornelius, North Carolina, about a half-hour north of Charlotte. The owners association's goal is to create a beautiful community that compliments the lakeside views and
community golf course.
The turf care and flower maintenance are the biggest challenges faced at The Peninsula. The large area, mature trees, and hillsides create many different microclimates within the community's common areas. This means that broad-based, community-wide floral designs and turf care programs aren't possible. In favor of a uniform program, each area is treated uniquely and addressed according to sunlight and water requirements. The Peninsula has a quarterly annual flower program and the bermudagrass is carefully monitored, fertilized and overseeded to maintain its bright green appearance in the season.
Kudos and congratulations to our Charlotte commercial landscape maintenance team for their work on this Gold award-winning project!
