Hello Friends! Please forgive me for being so behind in my blog posts. Spring struck early this year and I have hardly had a moment to catch a breath. This post is overdue, seeing as I received these photos well over a month ago. If you remember, way back, we started a project down in Jekyll Island, Georgia. This project, the new Jekyll Island Convention Center, brings new life to the historical vacation spot. This legacy project has been an exciting journey, and I am excited to share the photos of the finished product with you today. In case you want to read about this project from the beginning, you can check out the saga of Jekyll Island and our work there on our blog posts here, here, here and here.
And now, without further adieu... The new Jekyll Island Convention Center in all its glory!
Gibson Landscape is proud to have been a part of this historical project. Our hardscape team delivered beautiful hardscapes; including oyster shell concrete, sea shell paving, intricate paver designs and even a custom turtle formed by pavers and colored concrete. Our landscape team executed the installation of thousands of plants within a constrained schedule, including 9 16' clear trunk Canary Island Palms and nearly 600 Sabal Palmettos. The new Jekyll Island Convention Center, which earned silver-level LEED certification, is a beautiful destination. But don't take my word for it... find out for yourself by visiting Jekyll Island this summer!
It's performance on projects like this that has placed Gibson in the Top 150 Contractors in the United States. In one of the Nation's toughest regions, Gibson Landscape has established a track record for delivering outstanding results to demanding clientele desiring a contractor who simply "does what they say."
Special thanks to MG Photography for the incredible photos.
