Clarissa Cooper, Senior Landscape Designer at DreamScapes Receives MNLA Award for Excellence in Landscaping
Several members of the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association (MNLA) were recently honored with an Award for Excellence in Landscaping. Among those honored through the Landscape Awards program was Clarissa Cooper, Senior Landscape Designer at DreamScapes Landscaping & Design in Centerville.
A panel of practicing professionals in landscape education, landscape architecture, and horticulture judged each entry based upon quality of design, appropriateness of materials used, and the superiority of the workmanship. Entries are not judged against each other, but rather against standards of excellence in the green industry.
It was noted by the judges that, “This design playfully creates exciting spaces that are well defined and constructed on a very sensitive site.” They also commented that the “Colors and textures complement (the) existing house and the integration of the patio into the design is genius.”
The Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association is the state’s largest and oldest green industry trade association with more than 1,000 member-businesses including plant growers; garden centers; landscape contractors and designers; irrigation contractors; and lawn, tree, snow, and garden professionals.
