New Holland Construction and Lawn & Landscape magazine named Kinsella Landscape Inc., of Blue Island, Ill., as the winner of the “2010 Landscaper’s Challenge.” The grand prize — a New Holland L170 skid steer loader worth more than $32,000 — was presented to representatives of Kinsella Landscape during an award ceremony at the New Holland booth during the 2010 GIE+EXPO show in Louisville, Ky.

The nationwide contest, sponsored by New Holland, showcased the best landscape design/build projects of the year.

“New Holland is pleased to honor Kinsella Landscape as this year’s winner, and we congratulate the other semi-finalists and contestants for the challenges they overcame to complete their projects,” said Dave December, marketing manager, New Holland Construction.

Kinsella Landscape turned a dilapidated backyard — surrounded by townhomes and an eight-story high-rise — into a “city chic” garden sanctuary for a family living in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. The narrow alleyway, mature shade trees, tall fence and confined work area limited the team’s choices of equipment to a skid steer loader. The company created a private area for entertaining and relaxing, complete with two bluestone patios, a curved path and stone planters constructed from limestone. The project took 450 man-hours to complete.

Lawn & Landscape’s panel of industry judges selected Kinsella Landscape from the field of six semi-finalists based on the merits of their project’s design, overall appeal, material selection and workmanship.

Five other semi-finalists were selected by Lawn & Landscape magazine throughout the year:

• Green Works Environmental, LLC, Allenwood, N.J.

• K Morris Landscape Design, Inc., Oakdale, Pa.

• C&S Landscaping of Virginia, Strasburg, Va.

• Rain Men Landscaping and Irrigation, McDonald, Pa.

• Sycamore Springs Landscape, Reading, Pa.

The semi-finalists received $250 worth of New Holland merchandise.
