Cedar Crest challenged to go green in Best Atrium Landscape Contest


atrium contest B

Green thumbs up!

DMCI Homes’ search for the best landscape design is on! This year, the resort-inspired developer has chosen the Cedar Crest community to participate in its Best in Atrium Landscape Competition.

Beginning September, the sole DMCI Homes project’s residents and homeowners will be asked to team up with their building-mates and create the most sustainable and aesthetically winning landscape.

DMCI Homes, firm in its environmental endeavor, will provide each team with the gardening equipment, plants, and landscape elements they will be needing to execute their atrium ideas. These landscape projects will be monitored every month by the DMCI Homes’ Landscape Department and the Project Management Office (PMO).

Finally, the contest will conclude with a grand finals round in December where each atrium project will be judged based on the “healthy and vitality of the plants” and “design and aesthetic.”

A cash prize of P30,000 awaits the grand winner as First and Second Placers will receive P20,000 and P10,000 respectively. A P5,000 prize money will also be given to Special Awards recipients.
