ShadeFX Spotlight: Striving For Excellence with Hoffman Landscapes

After a quarter century of crafting high-end landscapes, earning recognition of their peers and praise from the industry, Hoffman Landscapes Inc continues to be a pillar of industry excellence. For us at ShadeFX, it was an honor to work alongside Hoffman’s award-winning landscape architect team and professional stone masons. Perhaps the most flattering gesture was that we would be working right in their own backyard.

A modern family residing in Fairfield, Connecticut was in search of a solution to their hectic schedules.  A personal retreat that would allow them to unwind, entertain and enjoy. According to Brian Cossari, the projects leading architect,

We needed to provide an easily accessible place for the husband to relax after work, and expand their existing patio into an outdoor living space and dining area to accommodate intimate family gatherings, or the little league team for an impromptu barbecue,” says Brian.  “Our challenge meant expanding the patio as requested without obscuring the rear yard view.

In order to address the homeowners’ different needs and wants, the design called for an expansive pergola design that allowed sightlines from the home and yard to remain intact.

To create an outdoor living room accessible at all times, Hoffman’s team installed our ShadeFX Underside Canopy. Not only did ShadeFX protect homeowners and their guests from the sun and rain, but provided necessary protection for their outdoors TV, fireplace and furniture.

This specific project was recognized by the Professional Landcare Network’s National Landscape Awards of Excellence program (PLANET) in the Residential Design-Build category, beating out thousands of entries from around the United States.

It was our great pleasure to have had an opportunity to work with such esteemed professionals. Our intention is to one day reach the quarter century milestone and become a pinnacle of success as a leader in our own industry.
