Hoffman Landscapes awarded for Excellence

Wilton, CT, October 2018 – Hoffman Landscapes is proud to announce it has been selected to receive a Gold Award of Excellence by the National Association of Landscape Professionals.

Each year, the National Association Landscape Professionals Awards of Excellence recognizes exceptional landscape, lawn care, and interior plantscape design projects from around the nation. This year,161 awards were bestowed for maintenance, design/build or contracting projects, with the highest distinction being the Gold Award.

The winning Fairfield County project was designed by Matthew Biron, one of Hoffman’s professional landscape architects. The craftsmen from Hoffman cleared and leveled the space for the backyard overhaul and built the homeowners a custom freeform pool, multiple sunning terraces, an elevated firepit, and an outdoor shower. Construction even encompassed a new back door for the house, which now opens to a quiet little “coffee patio.”

The homeowners are thrilled to be a part of this victory for the team at Hoffman. “We purchased our house with the plan to install a pool that would be a draw for family and friends,” they say. “Matt Biron created an outdoor space for us that is much more than we imagined was possible. Working with Matt and the rest of the Hoffman team has been a great experience.”

“We’re honored to be selected by our peers in the industry through the nation’s top landscape organization,” says Hoffman Landscapes president Mike Hoffman, who recently traveled to Louisville, KY to accept the award at NALP’s 2018 Expo. “Our team not only designed and constructed this project, but our maintenance department continues to care for the grounds. The homeowners have expressed interest in doing additional work in the future, so we look forward to seeing the property evolve!”
