Four Ohio companies have been announced as winners in the Ohio Nursery & Landscape Association (ONLA) 48th Annual Landscape Awards.
LWB Design, LLC, based in Willoughby, Ohio, was the only winner of a Grand Award this year for its complete landscape overhaul of a mid-century modern residential property located in Bath, Ohio.
