James River Nurseries would like to congratulate our friends at Waterstreet Studio, landscape architects of one of our projects, the Low Line, for receiving a 2018 Merit Award from the VA ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architects) under the General Design Category for their work on the Low Line.

The goal of the VA ASLA Professional and Student Awards is "to recognize Excellence, Exemplary Performance, and Significant Contributions within the landscape architecture profession of the Commonwealth of Virginia; to encourage the application of landscape architectural solutions to the issues, problems and opportunities challenging us today;  and to provide a forum for the review and evaluation of work currently shaping our environment."

The Merit Award recognizes functional solutions that achieve project purposes and exhibit a high standard of achievement in such a manner deserving state-wide recognition.

Congratulations, Waterstreet Studio!
