Local Design-Build landscape company takes “Best in Show” at the 2011 Philadelphia International Flower Show.
The Philadelphia International Flower Show, presented by PNC, is the nation’s premiere horticultural event, an award-winning destination consistently ranked in North America’s Top 100 events; featured in the best-selling 1,000 places to visit before you die; and known throughout the world as a must-see for flower and garden lovers.
Joe Palimeno, President and Landscape Designer, along with his company Ledden Palimeno are celebrating the victory for the Exhibit that they built for the EP Henry Corporation from Woodbury NJ. This marks our tenth year designing and building exhibits for EP Henry.
EP Henry is now in its 104th year in business and continues to be cutting edge with current and new product development. EP Henry manufactures a full line of Hardscaping ™ products and concrete masonry units in six fully automated manufacturing facilities. EP Henry is still family owned and operated, for four generations and has remained an industry leader in providing innovative products for a wide range of masonry, paving and landscape applications.
"Dinner and A Movie is the title and it celebrates outdoor living at its finest. Functional usable outdoor spaces never seem to go out of style and neither do water features. Places to gather that offer privacy with built in sitting areas and a fireplace extend the use well into the evening and into the fall and winter season”, says palimeno. “Pergola-covered patios are popular as well, offering the feel of an outdoor room and provides comfort from the sun”.
“The Flower Show puts us on a stage in front of 250,000 plus visitors for 9 days to showcase our talents and shows all the possibilities of what you can have or do in your own yard.
We added an additional surprise, an outdoor theater complete with surround sound and all the equipment is outdoor rated and was provided by Hifi House in Jenkintown PA. This is a trend we are going to see happen and will be just another way to extend the indoors out”.
“This wasn’t our only exhibit this year at the show, we built two exhibits for Subaru of America the premier sponsor of the Philadelphia International Flower Show and While the Philadelphia show was being installed we had a crew along with me building an exhibit for Subaru of America at the Seattle Washington North West Flower and Garden Show where they are one of the sponsors”.
Philadelphia featured a small park setting in the concourse complete with wire topiary people and animals all hand made by Larry Bloomfield of Ledden Palimeno. It was a big hit and everyone loved sitting for a picture on the bench next to the wire Frenchman.
For over 20 years, Ledden Palimeno has been creating show stopping exhibits at the world renowned Philadelphia Flower Show.
