ArtisTree Wins Four Awards at Parade of Homes

ArtisTree Landscape Maintenance & Design earned four awards recognizing excellence in landscaping at the annual Parade of Homes awards dinner hosted March 1 by the Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association.

The veteran landscape company won “Best Landscaping/Curb Appeal” for two local builders: Lee Wetherington Homes and Arthur Rutenberg/Nelson Homes. ArtisTree designed integrated landscaping to enhance home architecture and create a rich tour experience.

“The excitement we feel working with builders to extend design past the front door and into the outdoors is one of the key reasons we enjoy collaborating with them so much,” said Joe Mantkowski, General Manager over ArtisTree’s Design Division. “Every element, indoor and out, contributes to a beautiful unified look, and that process is very gratifying to us.”

Founded in 1990, ArtisTree Landscape Maintenance & Design specializes in planned community/commercial maintenance and landscape design/installation. The nationally ranked, privately held company is headquartered in Venice, FL, and serves Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte counties.
