(St. Louis, MO, October 18, 2018) – Frisella Nursery is proud to announce it has been awarded an Award of Excellence- Silver Award by the National Association of Landscape Professionals.

This Clayton residence was once home to one of Missouri’s oldest oak trees. When the tree finally perished, the homeowner was left with a backyard that needed a transformation. Frisella Nursery named this project A Formal Revival as the design complements the formal style of the home’s architecture, and gives new life where a beloved tree once stood.


Each year, the National Association Landscape Professionals Awards of Excellence recognizes exceptional landscape, lawn care, and interior plantscape design projects from around the nation. This year,161 awards were bestowed for maintenance, design/build or contracting projects.

“Our passion for plants goes back to our founder (my father), who started the Frisella Nursery more than 65 years ago. We understand the emotion that comes with the loss of an old tree. We did our best to honor its grandness in the new landscape design while giving the homeowner a garden she can tend to on her own as requested, said designer, Tony Frisella.
