Honor
Todd's Enviroscapes Inc. of Louisville created a landscape for Terry's Tire Town that not only took advantage of its naturalatmosphere but also created a more pleasant surrounding for its clientele. Initial evaluation determined that the building appeared to be quite understated. Todd's recognized there wasa definite need to make this property an attractive focal point. It was able to create the desired impression by incorporating acasual path to the entryway with a stone pillar, thereby adding interest as well. A natural screen, provided by stately Arborvitae, helped to define the space and also act as a separation fromthe parking lot. An outdoor lunch area surrounded by specimen plantings was introduced so that employees could enjoy a relaxingspace. The Japanese influence of this area, requested bythe owner, adds to the calming environment. A waterfall and abridge walkway contributes to this serene gathering area. While previously the landscape was relatively flat, mounding work wascompleted resulting in a rolling contour. Passing motorists and those visiting Terry's Tire Town can now enjoy the colors provided by the array of annuals and the added dimension created by the top rock detail.
