Congratulations, Ball Horticultural Company!

Congratulations to Ball Horticultural Company! The American Society of Landscape Architects’ Illinois Chapter has recognized the company’s eco-friendly corporate campus landscape improvements with a Merit Award in Environmental Stewardship.

WRD is honored to have developed the project with Ball Horticultural.

We’re also honored by the judges’ comments, which include:

  • Good example of how landscape architects can solve stormwater issues
  • Good way to move public toward appreciation of native plants
  • Demonstrated a strong environmental ethic
  • Great focus on stewardship

This is the project’s third award. It has also been recognized with a Conservation & Native Landscape Award by the US EPA and Chicago Wilderness, as well as an Excellence in Landscape Award by the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association.
