Pinnacle Stone Products partnered with J. Downend Landscaping, Inc. to create a British Cricket Club at the 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show.
This year’s show, which was held from March 2 through March 10 at the Philadelphia Convention Center, boasted a theme inspired by Great Britain and centuries of British Culture, therefore making Downend’s recreation of a British Cricket Club a perfect fit.
Pinnacle Stone Products supplied their natural stone veneer for the pillars and walls that Downend created as part of their display, which included a vast array of Britain-appropriate flowers and shrubbery, complete with signage and even a scoreboard. Tom Morris, Operation Manager for Downend, recounts a year of planning, months of preparation and many hours of construction to get a display built that is worthy of one of The Philadelphia Convention Center’s most attended events. He knows just what it takes: every detail must align with the theme, every plant is carefully picked and placed and must be labeled, and only the best building materials are used to add to the authenticity and natural richness of the project. “That’s why Pinnacle works so well for us,” Tom says. “As you can see, we attract the crowds. We have our people here to answer questions. Flower Show attendees are asking us about Pinnacle.”
Congratulations to our friends at Downend! Creativity, hard work, attention to detail and the best materials pay off with a Governor’s Trophy at the 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show.
