Young's Landscape Management Receives 2014 Awards of Distinction from New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association

January 8, 2015 - Moorestown/Lumberton, NJ - Young's Landscape Management, Inc. (Young's), a full service residential and commercial landscaping company headquartered in Southern New Jersey, is pleased to have received two Awards of Distinction from the New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association (NJLCA). Honored at the organization's 2014 Achievement Awards and Holiday Gala on December 2, 2014, Young's was recognized in the Residential $50,000-$100,000 Category for its Popler Residence project and the Residential $100,000-$200,000 Category for its Topolski Residence project.

Led by Mark DelPrato, Young's landscape designer, both projects encompassed Young's full scope of services and a complete team of landscape, hardscape and lighting professionals. The Popler project was one focused on fun and the creation of an interactive outdoor space for a father and his two young sons. Water jets and a stone fire pit area complemented the custom-built pavilion featuring a kid-friendly bar island with outdoor television. Said DelPrato, "The residence is part of an environmentally-sensitive golf course community in the Pinelands, so we had to incorporate eco-friendly elements such as bluestone, fieldstone, energy-efficient lighting and native plantings."

The Topolski project had its own unique challenges including a wetland buffer and 2-story existing deck. Yet it was the severe grade changes that required the most detailed logistical planning. In designing the outdoor space with tavern-like pavilion, pool and patio, Young's had to address a 10-foot change in elevation without the use of stairs and railings. "We used subtle transitions as a way to avoid steps and remain within Mount Laurel Township code," DelPrato explained.

Young's is a member of the NJLCA and supports the group's mission to advance the integrity, proficiency and continued growth of the landscape industry.
