METAIRIE, LA. -- Anthony’s recently transformed one of the area’s busiest intersections into a stunning tropical garden as part of an innovative beautification project designed to dramatically improve the image of Jefferson Parish’s main thoroughfare.
Anthony’s, a Jefferson Parish-based architecture, landscape and construction company, created an attractive park-like environment on each side of the Clearview Parkway/Veterans Boulevard intersection using shrubs, walls, pavers, flowers and palm trees.
The result is a unique public highway landscape that stands as an icon of the parish’s “Jefferson on the Move” initiative.
“The feedback from parish officials, business owners and passers-by has been phenomenal,” said Ted Anthony, owner of Anthony’s, which recently won the popular TV series “Landscapers Challenge.”
High visibility projects are nothing new to Anthony’s, which is responsible for many of the metro area’s most notable residential and business landscapes, including interior plant designs and maintenance for several of city’s most prominent building lobbies, offices and public spaces.
Continuing to contribute to East Jefferson ’s beautification efforts, Anthony’s has moved on to the unique Blue Dog installation near the intersection of Veterans and Causeway boulevards adjacent to Lakeside Mall.
On that site, Anthony’s is working on the backdrop for George Rodrique’s stunning 16 - foot Blue Dog sculpture commissioned especially for this location by Jefferson Parish.
