Westbury, NY:  Hicks Nurseries, Long Island’s premier garden center is thrilled to announce that its design/build division, Hicks Landscapes, was honored with three prestigious Environmental Enhancement Awards from LINLA (Long Island Nursery and Landscape Association).

The 2023/2024 LINLA Environmental Enhancement Awards marked the resurgance of its program after a five year hiatus, unserscoring its four decade legacy of celebrating excellence in landscaping. Hicks Landscapes was one of nine landscape design/build companies to submit entries. Its award winning projects are:

Gold Winner: Secluded Sanctuary, a captivating multi-level patio project intricately interconnected by a path of natural winding steps. Complete with an outdoor fireplace and pergola, outdoor kitchen and sitting area. Diverse plantings of different textures and colors chosen to offer year-round visual delight.

Silver Winner: Garden by the Pond, is a unique garden oasis featuring meandering mulch paths for strolls along the pond and a bluestone sitting area nestled in the shade. Thoughtfully curated plantings, grading, stonework and gravel beds not only enhance the aesthetics of the property but also help prevent erosion, a harmonization of nature and function.

Silver Winner: Close to Home, seamlessly weaves together every outdoor feature including a full outdoor kitchen, pergola and fire pit. It is an intimate outdoor living area that unites the home with an existing pool area with the use of walkways and ornamental summer plantings.

LINLA also acknowledged the significant contribution made by Hicks Commercial Sales, the wholesale division of Hicks Nurseries Inc., to the success of these award winning projects.
