Lambert's wins top award for garden

Industry News

The French Neo-Classical garden, previously recognized by PLANET, was designed, installed and is now maintained by Lambert's staff.

DALLAS – Lambert Landscape Co.’s Garden Services group has received the Grand Platinum Award by The Texas Nursery & Landscape Association (TNLA) for its management of a French Neo-Classical garden. 

TNLA’s Texas Excellence in Landscaping Platinum Award, which is not giving every year, recognizes one project which the judges feel deserves special recognition. Lambert’s received dual awards – platinum and gold – for the project.

Lambert’s is fortunate to work with a client who “appreciates a perfectly manicured garden that reflects the grace, glamour and orderly appointment of the home’s façade and interior,” said Mary Beth Riddle, the garden manager of the one-acre garden at time of recognition.

Originally designed and installed by Lambert’s, the goal of the Garden Services group was to maintain a French Impressionist landscape scene for the client to view from each window. Located in Preston Hollow, the French Neo-Classical garden is artistically divided into 12 garden rooms each linked by planted mosaic and crushed granite pathways and elegant cut-stone terraces.

Majestic oaks and elms and carefully pleached magnolias anchor the foundational plantings of clipped hedges, flowering shrubs, verdant lawns and groundcover. Additionally, antique statues, commissioned artwork, upholstered outdoor furniture, elegant water features and 80-plus containerized plantings are meticulously maintained year round by Lambert’s horticulturists, gardeners and arborists.

The firm was previously honored with the international Judges Award for 2008, the highest award given, for the submission of the French Neo-Classical Garden at the 39th Annual Environmental Improvement Awards Program sponsored by PLANET.
