CHLA Wins 2022 Merit Award for Our Project Willow Hill

By August 29, 2022 Awards

We are excited to announce that our Willow Hill project has just won a Merit Award at the 2022 Perennial Plant Association!

Willow Hill demonstrates how thoughtful design and site planning can positively improve the health of a waterfront property. Despite a multitude of hardscape and landscape challenges, the new owners’ request for an undemanding garden that harmonized with the tidewater ethos was fulfilled. Extensive drainage was added around the house and overlaid with a palette of colorful native grasses and perennials. In lowland areas of the site, the landscape architects repaired a collapsed stormwater pipe, filled a sinkhole, reduced the extent of the lawn, and planted a large “sponge” of native wetland species.
