Chicago-area Contractor Receives New Skid Steer Loader as Grand Prize

 RACINE, Wis. - (Nov. 4, 2010) - 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.

Kinsella Landscape is supported by a team of highly trained professionals with an aggregate experience of more than 150 years. The company "creates lifestyles from the outside in" by providing exceptional service using the best practices in the green industry.

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, and will have their project highlighted in an issue of Lawn & Landscape.
