>> TOP HONORS: Congrats to Malvern’s Pohlig Builders on bringing home the gold from the National Association of Home Builders’ Best in American Living Awards for its Athertyn community (pictured) in Haverford. “Our community was singled out for successfully addressing the
desires of boomers’ next life stage,” says Todd Pohlig of the honor they received at the International Builders’ Show in January.
>> ROAD TRIP: Plenty of local landscape pros will be featured at this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show March 5-13. The show’s theme, “Explore America,” celebrates the centennial of the National Park Service. After the Fire, the exhibit by Glen Mills’ Stoney Bank Nurseries, was inspired by Yellowstone National Park. For After the Encampment, Ardmore’s Hunter Hayes Landscape Design offers a glimpse of what Valley Forge might have been like several years after the troops left. And the wonder of Washington state’s Olympic National Park is reflected in the display by Swarthmore-based Michael Petrie’s Handmade Gardens.
