Success at AIA: What we Learned

AIA 2019 was a great success!  We were able to show some of our new products and design features–but that’s not what made it a success.  We had multiple people commit to spec CityScapes products and some that even ordered our products–but that’s not what made it a success.

What made it a success was the tremendous feedback, suggestions and stories that were shared by the hundreds of people that stopped by our booth.  As a result of these conversations, we are intentionally violating the “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” rule.  The CityScapes team is taking the ideas and feedback shared in Vegas and integrating it into our products, our website and specifications.  Don’t worry, we won’t use any names or photos of the contributors.

The entire CityScapes team is looking forward to continuing the conversations we started at AIA ‘19 and look forward to AIA ‘20 in Los Angeles.

Featured Project: English Garden

If you ask any green thumb, they’d tell you that gardening is good for the soul. Although there isn’t any empirical evidence of this, it’s tough to deny the benefits. If you’re in doubt, just google the health benefits of gardening. From stress relief and combating depression, to improved hand-eye coordination and a strengthened immune system, it’s easy to see why so many include gardening in their routine. The practice of gardening has no age limit or pre-qualification. It can be as simple as a potted plant on a stoop or as elegant as the project we recently completed.

The homeowner of this beautiful garden customized our Planx Planters to have a classic English Garden feel, complete with a walkway and defined borders. The elegant potting shed anchors the garden and features our wall-mounted NatureScreen trellis product for the climbing plants that will complete the formal garden look.

The client selected English Walnut Planx® and black frames for the raised beds and CityScapes green for the NatureScreen panels. The CityScapes team worked closely with the landscape architect on the design and are proud to be part of this project. We can’t wait to see the garden in full bloom this spring.
