We are thrilled to announce that Michael A. Gilkey, Jr. has been named Best Landscape Architect in the 2011 Best of SRQ Local Reader’s Choice Competition, featured in the April 2011 SRQ Magazine. The following excerpts were also printed in the issue.

Architecture is such a big deal in Srasota that readers demanded our poll include a subcategory just for the landscape architects that beautify our green spaces in Southwest Florida. In this contest, Michael A. Gilkey, Jr. snagged the blue (or is it green?) ribbon thanks to a commitment to beautify and an ability to please customers.

Mattias Carlsson on Gilkey landscapes: “He really respects the environment and creates unique and natural looking landscape designs.”

Caroline Clausen on why Michael Gilkey is her landscape architect: “I feel Michael really listens to what the client likes. He doesn’t imposed a preconceived ‘Gilkey’ landscape, but rather designs a vision from the collaborative effort.”
