It took their team 2 days to finish the landscape , which they have to take live plants like anahaw (Saribus rotundifolius ) , Alcantarea imperialis ,Alcantarea odorata cycads , ferns , bromeliads , bamboo , aglaonemas , tree ferns, platycerium among others.
local furniture and products were also part of the magnificent display
They also included indigenous materials from different provinces to complement the garden style setting .
local furnitures and home decors were also part of the design
It was their privilege and honor that they were entrusted to do the landscaping of SM Mall of Asia- Arena where the “Welcome ” dinner and cultural show was held.
large anahaw palms
They had to bring large trucks and hire several workers to haul the big plants and to finish entire landscape jobs. They used the freight elevator , climb the stairs to carry all the plants and accents at the venue place which is hard work for everyone.

They are also very happy when foreign guests and local visitors marvel at their landscape jobs.
