In its first year as an exhibitor at the fourth biennial Singapore Garden Festival, Joe Palimeno of Ledden Palimeno Landscape Company took home the top two awards for the Landscape Garden category: "Best in Show" and "Gold."
The Singapore Garden Festival is the only show in the world that gathers top award-winning garden and floral designers. Palimeno's exhibit, "The Modernist Garden," drew inspiration from Robert Royston, a pioneer of modern design and one of the first to create gardens that acted as outdoor rooms.
"The driving force in my design work has always been to create functional and usable outdoor spaces," said Palimeno. "Whether in a backyard garden or a regional use plan, the goal is the creation of delight, joy and serenity for the people who inhabit the space. The Modernist Garden experimented with innovative materials inspired by modern art and social ideas."
An Authorized Contractor of EP Henry, Ledden Palimeno also took home "Best in Show" at the 2012 Philadelphia International Flower Show for the EP Henry exhibit, 'Ohana Ho'olaule'a, which is Hawaiian for "family celebration." To date, Ledden Palimeno has designed and built 11 flower show exhibits for EP Henry and has won four "Best in Show" awards since it began working with the Hardscaping manufacturer 20 years ago.
Led by Joe Palimeno, owner and landscape designer, Ledden Palimeno has been involved with several of EP Henry's large-scale projects in the Greater Philadelphia region, including XFINITY Live! where it helped design most outdoor features of the complex: the EP Henry Road to Victory, Great Plaza, Valet drop-off area, front entrance and walkways.
"We'd like to congratulate Joe and his team for another job well done and wish them continued success," said J.C. Henry III, president and CEO of EP Henry. "We're proud to have such an accomplished and talented hardscaping and landscaping partner in Ledden Palimeno with whom our long-standing relationship is a testament to how much we appreciate and value our contractors."
Now celebrating its 20th year in business, Ledden Palimeno has been awarded numerous awards, distinguishing itself as a leader in landscaping and Hardscaping design.
