Mariani Landscape’s Grand Elegance project received an Acanthus Award from The Chicago-Midwest Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art.

Mariani Landscape, a privately owned residential landscape company based in Lake Bluff, Ill., was recognized by the Chicago-Midwest Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art as the 2016 Acanthus Award winner for Landscape Design for the second year in a row. The award acknowledges and promotes excellence in classical and vernacular design.The honor highlights Mariani Landscape’s Grand Elegance project in the North Shore area of Chicago’s suburbs. Mariani Landscape stayed true to the aesthetic of a historic 1920s residence by creating a design that incorporated the existing stone, brickwork and sculptures on the property. The awards ceremony will take place at 4 p.m. on Nov. 12 at the Elks National Memorial in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood.

The Davey Expert Co. restored and repurposed The Davey Bryce Road facility, which originally opened in 1954 and is located on the west side of Kent, Ohio. The building has been mostly used for records storage for the past 15 years but will now become the home of the 20-member Davey Resource Group’s Natural Resources Consulting team. In July, the Kent City Council declared the building a historic local property due to the significant role it’s played in the growth of Davey Tree. Last week, the Kent Area Chamber of Commerce honored the restoration with an IMMY Award.
