Hardscape Award Winners Announced

Pacific Outdoor Designs won an award in the "10,000-50,000 sq. feet concrete paver" category for its work at the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Hotel and Resort. The project involved removing a large amount of old concrete pool decking and walkways from the existing swimming pool area. There was 83 feet of tumbled charcoal coping installed for the two swimming pools. The pavers extended out through a wide main entry and also led to various walkways for the four surrounding hotel buildings and the parking lot. The large entryway leading to the pools had to blend in with many curving landscaped islands and the two pools with many sweeping curves.
