Hicks Landscape Design Recognized by NYSNLA with Two Design Awards for Environmental Beautification
February 10, 2020
Hicks Nurseries, Long Island’s largest garden center and a sixth-generation family business, has been creating beautiful landscapes since 1853. Their landscape design/build team was recently recognized by the New York State Nursery and Landscape Association (NYSNLA) with two award-winning projects for environmental beautification.
The winners of NYSNLA’s 2019 Environmental Beautification Awards came from four different NYSNLA regions demonstrating exemplary work.
“We are thrilled to have received two design awards from NYSNLA. Our team takes pride in our landscape designs with a commitment to excellence at every stage of the installation process,” says William Winiecki, Hicks Landscapes’ General Manager.
Hicks Nurseries has a long, storied tradition that has shaped the landscapes of Long Island. At the turn of the century, they invented and patented the equipment for moving big trees that were desired by Long Island’s new estate owners of that time. Full grown trees – sometimes in full leaf – were carefully extracted from the earth and taken to Gold Coast mansions such as the Vanderbilt Mansion, JP Morgan Estate and the Phipps Estate (currently Old Westbury Gardens) where many still flourish.
Today, Hicks continues to provide innovation, expertise and reliability. The Hicks Landscapes team is comprised of expert horticulturists who understand Long Island climate. Their multi award winning designs and installations stand the test of time. Their work covers all aspects of outdoor living including outdoor kitchens and entertainment areas, front entries, masonry walkways and steps, foundation plantings, screening gardens, garden construction, patios, retaining walls, wood structures, custom pool designs and more. Hicks Landscapes also provides extended care services such as garden bed maintenance and seasonal color enhancement for year-round beauty. This type of maintenance is different than, and often not what is provided by regular lawn maintenance companies or gardeners.
