Traveling around Marco Island, it’s easy to see why five area landscapers walked away with the city’s highest awards in the Marco in Bloom competition. Their creations married breathtaking beauty with practical non water-wasting gardening, a requirement for high honors.
The awards were announced at the beginning of Marco Island’s City Council meeting Monday by members of the Beautification Advisory Committee.
