2005 VERSA-LOK Design Contest Winner Announced
If there's a feature that Scott Van Asten didn't use in his winning entry in VERSA-LOK's second annual design contest, it probably hasn't been invented yet. Curves, corners, tiered walls, stairs, freestanding walls and columns all are integrated in a stunning lakeside patio and entertainment area that brought home the $5,000 grand prize for Van Asten and his employer, Vosters Landscaping Inc. of Kaukauna, Wis.
Contest judges praised the project's "commanding, classic look."
The VERSA-LOK Mosaic product used in Van Asten's project was manufactured by Bend Industries in Appleton and West Bend, Wis.
Runner-up winners in the VERSA-LOK 2005 Design Contest were: David M. Mastropietro, Surroundings Landscape & Design, Mechanicville, N.Y., for his design of retaining walls and outdoor dining area for the historic renovation of the Light House Restaurant in Scotia, N,Y.; and Tim Wenrich, Clearwater Landscapes, Centre Hall, Pa., for his design of an elaborate series of tiered retaining walls with a waterfall and built-in outdoor kitchen at a residence in Tyrone, Pa.
Honorable Mention was awarded to Jeff Kurilla, Sticks and Stones Landscape Construction, Oakland, Md., for an extensive residential project in Oakland featuring a pool, waterfall, fireplace and patio.
