Awards

The wonderful thing about winning awards is that a prospective pool buyer can get a good, honest and objective “third party” opinion about a builder’s quality of workmanship. Just Last year the Flint team walked away with 5 awards for excellence in design build at the NESPA achievement awards banquet in Atlantic City NJ. Who knows – Maybe your pool will be next!

2015 NJLCA Landscape Achievement Awards

Thomas Flint Landscape Design & Development Wins Seven NJLCA Landscape Achievement Awards

3

Thomas Flint Landscape Design & Development, of Midland Park, New Jersey won an Award of Excellence, four Awards of Distinction and two Awards of Merit in the 2015 NJLCA Landscape Achievement Awards! Their Award of Excellence, in the Poolscapes: $100,000 – 300,000 was for their McKeon Residence project.
After entertaining their clients wish to have a pool located at the lower lawn area of their yard, they finally warmed up to the idea of bringing the pool closer to the house, as per Thomas Flint’s suggestions, Flint explained how the vanishing edge pool created more useable space at the upper level, while the pool structure dealt with retaining the 8’ drop in grade. The benefits to the client were that the pool was closer to the house and eliminated the need for a pool house and outdoor kitchen, while creating an accessible and dramatic water feature too.
The steep change in grade required the pool to be formed above ground and completely backfilled with gravel after being shot with gunite. A custom slotted stone drain in front of the sliding glass doors allows for the pool patio to pitch back to the house for drainage, while not detracting from the patio. The project included drainage and grading, retaining walls, plant material, pool, patios, container plantings and lighting.
The judges stated that this was a great use of the vanishing edge pool. They balanced the hardscape with the green space very well. In all, it was a beautiful job with a “wow” factor!
Thomas Flint Landscape also won four Awards of Distinction in the categories of: Complete Property Installation: Over $100,000 for the Ameres and Wilkomm Residences, Hardscape Installation: $50,000 – 100,000 for the Kelly Residence and Outdoor Construction for the Ameres Residence, as well as two Awards of Merit in Poolscapes: Up to $100,000 for the Connors and Nesland Residences.
