We Love Florida
If you’re like us, the sub-zero temperatures that our northern friends have been experiencing have us really grateful that we live in such a beautiful place. Let’s face it, you can’t beat living in a nearly year-round tropical paradise. If you’re happy to live in Florida, and you know it, raise your hand! 🙋 Or, you can just stop by and see our most recently finished landscape and Turf installation at Green Bench Brewing Co… because that will make you happy too.
Green Bench is a neat spot in downtown St. Petersburg, on Baum Avenue North. It was actually the first microbrewery in St. Pete, and has a large indoor tasting area, as well as a 6000 square-foot outdoor biergarten (which is where we worked our Hardeman magic). The brewery was named after the mass amount of green benches that originally lined the streets of St. Pete in the 1900’s. The purpose of these benches was to encourage people to sit, talk, and build community with each other. We thought it was fitting that we could assist Green Bench in preserving that part of old St. Pete’s history by creating a beautiful space that continues to promote community and cheer.
Our scope of work in the biergarten included installing 6000 square-feet of artificial turf, tropical Palm Trees, other landscape plants/mulch, and irrigation. The artificial turf installation features an Ultrabase system which is produced locally in Pinellas County. The Ultrabase system increases the drainage ability of the turf and gives it a softer feel. Who doesn't love soft, lush grass that requires zero maintenance? If you're interested in learning more about Ultrabase, click the logo below to visit their website.
A little sneak peek of the finished project:
Just let us warn you now, kicking back with a drink in this cool new spot will probably have you dreaming about having your own little (or big) slice of backyard paradise. Which is completely achievable with a little help from your friends at Hardeman, by the way! We are shameless. We love landscaping, and we would love to help you build your dream space. Whether it’s replacing some tired shrubs, installing a paver patio, or designing and installing an entire entertaining or event space, we are here for you!
