|Venice, FL, October 26, 2012— ArtisTree Landscape Maintenance & Design has been selected by three local prominent builders to landscape-design four different luxury-home models in the 15th annual Tour of Homes, held from Oct. 26-Nov. 18, in Lakewood Ranch, FL.
Derek Nelson Homes, Todd Johnston Homes and Lee Wetherington Homes hired ArtisTree to create integrated landscaping that would enhance their model homes and create a rich tour experience that also includes a variety of other activities and events.
“The excitement we feel working with builders to extend design past the front door and into the outdoors is one of the key reasons we enjoy collaborating with them so much,” said Joe Gonzalez, ArtisTree CEO. “Every element, indoor and out, contributes to a beautiful unified look, and that process is very gratifying to us.”
