Reflections Water Gardens, West Dundee, Ill., has received three Gold Awards from the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association (ILCA). The awards were given as part of the recent 2019 iLandscape Show and recognize excellence in landscape design, construction and maintenance.
Owned by Larry Carnes, president, Reflections Water Gardens designs and builds natural swimming pools and recreation ponds, koi habitats, water gardens and other water features. All three awards were given in the Specialty Elements category.
Projects receiving honors include a 1.5-acre waterfall and recreation pond, carefully crafted from the earth at the back of a private estate in Mettawa, Illinois. Gold Awards were also given for a 40- by 20-foot, three-feet deep pond for a Chicago firefighter’s koi collection and a multi-tiered waterfall and pond for Barrington, Ill. homeowners.
ILCA enhances the professionalism and capabilities of members by providing leadership, education, representation and services while promoting environmental awareness and the value of the landscape industry. “It is an honor to be recognized by one’s professional colleagues,” Carnes says. “Thank you to the ILCA and the awards judges for this terrific honor.”
