Landscape Awards- 2018   

    

This year's landscape awards for residential and business properties contribute to the overall improvement of the urban environment in Bath. Urban forestry advocates the role of trees as a critical part of the urban infrastructure providing environmental sustainability, good health, and economic benefits to cities across the country.   

 

The BCFC awarded its residential landscape award to Marie and Stephen Perry of 118 North Bath Road (two upper right photos) for their remarkable residence which was the former Fair  Haven Inn. The property showcases pink and white Crabapple trees, Cherry trees, a  magnificent Silver maple, and a variety of perennials including pink phlox, coral day lilies,         
hydrangea, iris, “Sea Green” hosta, and peonies. A lovely butterfly garden sits to the right of the front lawn. The hillside behind the house received a haircut and cleanup from seven goats (Scapegoats of Kennebunk) who spent a week munching on poison ivy and weeds after the  Perry’s purchased the property in 2013.  

 

The business landscape award went to Wayne Robbins Woodcarving Studio at 1302 High Street (bottom right photo). Mr. Robbins is a  renowned artist famous for his wood carvings of whales, other sea creatures and birds. The Robbins’ property is a certified wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Trees include pine, Sugar maple, Balsam fir, birch , hemlock, flowering crabapple, apple, gray birch, white birch, red and white oaks, Alberta spruce, and American elm.  

Thank you to both owners for their generosity in letting the BCFC showcase their properties!
