Paradise Restored Landscaping & Exterior Design.)
I loved everything about the Garden-to-Table edible display designed by landscape designers Karen Schwartz, Calandula Gardens, and Carol Senna, Melingo Studio. From a farm table set for dinner fresh from the potager garden to the cloche created from a reclaimed glass vase, the attention to detail was extraordinary. Every aspect of the garden was educational.
The Association of Northwest Landscape Designers (ANLD) created a booth filled with a luscious mix of plants.
Mark Sander Landscape Services made clever use of corrugated metal panels, creating a soft industrial look (note the framed pieces in the ANLD booth, photo above). I’m wondering if I could incorporate similar panels into a backyard fence somehow...
I had to stop and take a closer look at this diminutive moss purse found in the Creekside Treasures Farm & Nursery booth.
English daisies take me back to my early childhood when I imagined them to be part of fairy gardens. I still find them irresistibly charming. These were found in the French Prairie Gardens display.
Out in the Garden Nursery offered these at the show.
Mossy. Earthy. Almost as if fairies could be found there. Very Irish. Very Hughes Water Gardens.
Landscape East & West.
Anteak’s birds, fish, turtles and garden seating are carved from teak, often reclaimed. They are an investment, but they would last a lifetime. I particularly loved the carved pelican.
