Mayor Susan Haynie announced the winners of the 2014 Landscape Excellence Awards presented by the Boca Raton Beautification Committee on June 10.
    This recognition encourages people to improve the landscaping around homes and businesses. The dozen or so committee members spent the past couple of months nominating more than 80 properties and selecting winners in seven out of a dozen categories.
    “We were interested in the frontage of the property; what you can see from the street,” said committee co-chair Richard Randall. The properties were judged on their mix of plants, creative designs, tree canopy and proper pruning, mulching and maintenance.
    “This year we were glad to see that the tree canopy is being treated better,” said Randall. “The committee’s efforts to educate people about tree care seem to be paying off.”
    The 2014 winners and their categories are Peninsula Plaza, large commercial; Millennium Two, industrial; Harbor Point, low-density gated residential; Camino Verde, medium-density residential; Luxuria, high-density residential; The Gardens, institutional; Boca Raton Downtown Library, LEED environmentally green; Valero Gas/PRIP Mart No. 199, service station; FPL Hillsboro Substation in Palm Beach Farms, community recognition property; and Palmetto Dunes Park, city property.
