Gachina wins 4 landscape awards at the CLCA San Francisco Bay Area awards program
The 44th annual CLCA SF Bay Area Achievement Awards were held on June 16th at the University Club in Palo Alto. The Awards program recognize crafts people who produce outstanding landscapes, create pride in superior workmanship and bestow public recognition on companies, institutions, municipalities and residents for a beautiful California. Gachina Landscape Management was honored with the following four awards including the prestigious Landscape Management Sweepstakes award:
Landscape Management Sweepstakes, Private Los Altos Hills Estate. Awarded to the best maintained property out of all categories. This exquisite residence covers 8 acres of rolling hills in Los Altos. The grounds are maintained with sustainable landscape practices utilizing organic products. The outdated irrigation system requires constant management and quick responses. The attention to detail, accompanied by the necessity for privacy, makes this an extremely challenging, yet highly rewarding account.
First Place, The Peninsula Regent, San Mateo. The vision of the landscape designer is to implement a secret garden feeling by planting more perennial type plants. No chemicals or herbicides are allowed, property is managed organically (except for the rose garden). Grounds are divided into multiple gardens with different needs: Japanese / wisteria garden, California native garden, Woodland meditation garden for assisted living, rose garden. Gachina has managed this site for over 20 years.
First Place, Large Commercial Maintenance, 1400 Page Mill, Palo Alto. This property adheres to a 55% landscape water efficient ecosystem. Management of various pests is accomplished while adhering to LEED platinum standards. Property owner is highly involved and has an eye for detail. Landscape is naturally pruned throughout with a free-flowing, manicured look.
Achievement Award, Medium Commercial Maintenance, Franklin Templeton Investments. This high-profile campus draws investors from around the world daily. Noise restrictions are the number one challenge during business hours. Pedestrian and vehicle traffic add additional challenges as well as the outdated irrigation system. We were excited to implement the recently approved turf conversion to a drought-tolerant plant selection.
