Torrey Pines Landscape Company Wins The 2023 CLCA Design & Build Outstanding Achievement Award!

Awards Torrey Pines Landscape Company Wins The 2023 CLCA Design & Build Outstanding Achievement Award!

The awards just keep rolling in! Last week, we announced that Torrey Pines Landscape Company had won the much-vaunted President’s Award from the California Landscape Contractors Association, but the recognition didn’t stop there!

Torrey Pines also nabbed the CLCA’s Outstanding Achievement award for the residential design and build category. The recent total property makeover in Encinitas was the design that gave the company the edge over the competition!

As our first announcement post covered, the California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA) is a statewide non-profit trade organization comprising state-licensed landscape and landscape-related limited specialty contractors. The organization’s 2,500-strong membership roster also includes suppliers, landscape architects, educators, public officials, and students.

The San Diego chapter of the CLCA’s annual Beautification Awards showcases the impressive work of its members, representing some of the best and brightest landscaping contractors in the world. 18 award categories recognize individual elements of a design-build project, including lighting and water efficiency, and overall recognition of a project’s scope and quality.

The Outstanding Achievement Award for design and build for residential construction recognizes the complexity of a redesign and the skill of the contractor’s team in successfully implementing that design. The project recognized – an Encinitas property situated on a downward-sloping hill – redesigned the entryway to the property, expanded the seating areas, added a custom patio cover, planted with drought tolerant and native plants, and designed a new pool area within the slope. 

Mark Southern, Registered Landscape Architect and Project Manager states, “The overall simplicity of this project exhibits restraint in design while showcasing high quality craftsmanship. We have considerable detailing on this project which elevates the experience and timelessness of this build”.
