Landscaping will surely turn a piece of bare land into something impressive. In Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental, we have seen how landscaping makes the difference in plots that used to be nothing but plain ordinary.
The first photo shows how the trees and plants create a fresh and cool environment at Limketkai Center which is in the middle of the downtown Cagayan de Oro. Lately, Limketkai Center has been changing its landscape and has placed more ornamental plants. There is that sense of relief as you get inside this business complex from the very busy National Highway in Lapasan.
Laguindingan Airport, as shown in the second photo looks much better with colourful plants and lush greens. Airport landscaping provides a good first impression to visitors coming to Cagayan de Oro and Northern Mindanao. I wonder if there are people assigned for the landscaping and maintenance of our new Laguindingan Airport.
