Working closely with Brookgreen Gardens’ staff and the design/build team, Environmental Concepts is honored to have been a part of the eponymous pavilion project!
“Brookgreen Gardens, a national historic landmark, on Monday announced the opening of their new Leonard Pavilion. The space is now available for rentals and will host Brookgreen’s array of programs and special events. The pavilion, located near the Lowcountry Center, is named for Trustee Emeritus Don Leonard who donated the lead gift for the building’s construction.
“The Leonard Pavilion offers guests a beautiful covered venue in one of the most dazzling locations in the Lowcountry,” Page Kiniry, CEO of Brookgreen Gardens, said. “We are ecstatic to be able to utilize this outdoor space for our guests. It would not have been possible without our donors, whose support keeps Brookgreen a landmark for generations to come.”
The pavilion will host a multitude of events and educational programming and will support the Creative Education and Collections Departments, Brookgreen’s learning hub for history and nature. In 2018, more than 8,000 students attended creative educational programs at Brookgreen with over 5,600 different school groups attending.
Brookgreen will hold special events and programs in the Leonard Pavilion for members and guests to enjoy. Along with Brookgreen’s hosted events, members will be able to rent the Pavilion for private events including weddings.”

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 breathe 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.
CountryLiving had this to say: “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.”
