Pinehurst announces Warren H. Manning awards

The Village of Pinehurst Beautification Committee announced the recipients of this year’s Warren H. Manning Award.

The award honors one of America’s preeminent landscape architects and the landscape heritage he created for Pinehurst. It recognizes exceptional landscapes in Pinehurst neighborhoods and commercial areas that enhance the village through the use of native and non-native plantings, water conservation practices and design principles that provide a communal benefit to the village — Manning’s vision.

The properties receiving this year’s Warren H. Manning Award epitomize Manning’s vision of landscapes that fit into the natural surroundings.

Built in 1920, Ivy Point Cottage at 10 McCaskill Road East showcases the plants Manning envisioned for Pinehurst. Peek through the original pierced brick wall to see a natural landscape lush with Redbuds, Dogwoods, Southern Magnolias, Deodar Cedars, Coral Honeysuckle, Cleyera, Laurel and many Camellias original to the first owners.

On the Barrett Road side of the property is the last remaining vestige of the original Ligustrum thicket between the road and the clay pedestrian walkway. These privets protected pedestrians from the street and were in Manning’s design throughout the village. 10 McCaskill Road East is best viewed from the Barrett Road side of the property.

Liscombe Lodge at 75 Linden Road was built in 1927. This property has a beautiful, mature, and diverse landscape that balances native and non-native plantings. The property can be viewed from McCaskill Road West and the village walking path. Native Southern Magnolia and Redbuds, as well as Longleaf and Loblolly Pines create a canopy for flowering Gardenias, Camellias, and Laurels. Water conservation is evident in the use of Ivy and Vinca in place of lawn.

Nestled between the USGA Golf House and the World Golf Hall of Fame is a newly created pollinator garden, The Glade. The USGA has designed an active pollinator habitat carefully curated with water conservation and sustainable gardening in mind. The garden creates continuous blooms with year-round pollen and nectar sources. Native grasses create a perimeter complimenting Butterfly Milkweed, Lantana, Blanket Flowers, Verbena, Black-eyed Susans and more. Located at 3 Carolina Vista, this garden is a stunning example of Manning’s vision for Pinehurst.

“Congratulations to the 2024 award recipients, and thank you for upholding Manning’s vision and legacy in the Village of Pinehurst,” announced the village in a press release.
