TROY, N.Y. – Gallivan Corp., a family-owned and managed landscape design construction and management firm based out of Troy, N.Y., was recently awarded a Merit Award by the PLANET. The award was given as part of PLANET’s 2011 Annual Environmental Improvement Awards.

“We are extremely honored to be recognized by PLANET as our talented team puts tremendous passion into each and every project they do,” said Brendan Gallivan, president of Gallivan Corp.

The award was based on a residential landscape installation project at a private residence in the Capital District, N.Y. The project was designed to the client’s specifications and includes multiple entertaining areas. One entertainment area features a circular paver patio with a bluestone border and seating walls along a gas fire pit. Another area includes an in-ground pool with an adjacent hot tub.

Additionally, there is a concrete pool deck and bluestone coping with a natural full color bluestone border. A natural limestone waterfall flows into the custom pool, and the hot tub was fitted with custom-cut radial bluestone cap stones. To add to the ambiance, a custom hemlock pergola and a chef’s dream outdoor kitchen area provide yet another elegant entertainment area.

Other features include bluestone stepping stones, several plants, and custom landscape lighting. Award classification lists the cost of the project between $100,000 and $500,000.

This was the third nationally recognized landscape award for Gallivan Corporation for PLANET’s Annual Environmental Improvement Awards. In 2009, it was recipient of a Distinction Award, and in 2010 it was recipient of a Merit award for A Backyard Transformation.
