Company: Complete Landsculpture

When Santosh George, ASLA, and his team at Complete Landsculpture took over this project they didn’t know the number of challenges they would face.

The client’s intent for the project was improvements to the 12-year-old site that wore out over time. The upgrades necessary included new planting, seating, lighting and fountains.

“The new owners bought the property in 2022,” says George. “They had several landscape architects look at it, but the process was not moving fast enough. They had a lot of new tenants in place that wanted this done quickly.”

Modifications were necessary to the site for sub-surface irrigation and drainage purposes. Making things more difficult, George’s crew needed to work without disturbing the surrounding active retail spaces.

To overcome these hurdles, Complete Landsculpture worked with the client to schedule each step of the installation.

“It was a lot of day-to-day coordination between the project managers and property managers to make sure they knew what we knew,” George says.

Complete Landsculpture won a Silver Award from the 2023 National Association of Landscape Professionals’ Awards of Excellence program for this project.

The project features an event lawn of synthetic turf, complete with a creek flowing through it.

Shops and apartments surrounded the project, which all needed to remain accessible during the installation process.

The contractor, in addition to working around active businesses, had a small area to work in, adding to the challenge.

In addition to the seating area, the contractor installed new fountains and lighting along the edge of the existing pond.
