Environmental Concepts was thrilled to celebrate #WLAM2019 and honored to see some of our project images featured in ASLA National’s article!
“ASLA asked its members to share their favorite landscape architect-designed spaces with #WLAM2019 and a card that read, “This is Landscape Architecture.” The goal was to connect the term “landscape architecture” to the work of landscape architects.
This year, 1,013 people posted 5,500 times with #WLAM2019, which helped introduce the profession to more than 2.5 million people worldwide.“
Back in 1992, Environmental Concepts worked with the local business community to help them visualize a brighter future for their old, rundown Main Street district. The resulting Redevelopment Master Plan has helped breath new life into this oceanfront resort and shagging destination! Numerous concerts, festivals, parades, and Society of Stranders events take place annually here in North Myrtle Beach, the birthplace of “The Shag” – South Carolina’s Official State Dance.
“No trip to North Myrtle Beach would be complete without wandering Main Street and reliving that childhood vacation high on this nostalgia-imbued strip. Of course, there’s also the adult version of fun: grabbing a blanket and holding up where road melds into sand and enjoying live music in the band shell for Music on Main. The next day, you’ll likely need some hair of the dog at Coconuts Tiki Bar and Grill and a burger from Pirate’s Cove. Or you know, a restorative dip in the ocean.”
