KokoBo Honored With ALCA’s Environmental Improvement Award

KokoBo Plantscapes, Ltd. is the recipient of The Associated Landscaper Contractors of America's (ALCA) Environmental Improvement Award in the category of Residential Design/Build between $25,000 - 100,000.

The Environmental Improvement Award is presented to KokoBo for the Lefkowitz project, which transformed a baron West Village (New York City), pre-war building rooftop into a rooftop garden. The rooftop, which is approximately 900 square feet, is adorned with lush, native plants, pergola-covered dining area and barbeque station, overlooking the Manhattan skyline.

"We are extremely honored that ALCA has recognized the work of KokoBo Plantscapes," said Michael Madarash, president of KokoBo Plantscapes, Ltd. "To be named a national award winning company and to be included among the other companies who have received such awards in the past is rewarding and inspirational to both my entire staff and myself."

The Environmental Improvement Award reflects ALCA's commitment to creating and preserving the beauty of exterior and interior landscapes. The program was developed to recognize independent exterior and interior professionals who have executed quality projects and to recognize the citizens who underwrite these works. Entries are judged on craftsmanship, relative contribution to the quality of the environment and overall excellence.

ALCA will be honoring the Environmental Improvement Award recipients for exterior and interior projects at its Green Industry Conference and Expo, Nov. 6, in Charlotte, N.C., and again in Jan. at the Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition (TPIE) in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., where Madarash will be personally accepting the award.
