Our display garden, entitled “Sommarstuga,” won three major awards at the 2008 Northwest Flower & Garden Show, the third largest garden show in the United States.

• Founder's Cup (Best in Show) - most
   overall meritorious exhibit.
• Sunset's Western Living® Award -
   garden most filled with fresh, useful,    achievable ideas that enhance outdoor

• Gold Medal - for garden design from the    independent NWFGS judges.

Co-sponsored by the Washington State Nursery & Landscape Association and the Partnership for Water Conservation, our garden featured low-water-use plants suitable for Northwest gardens, a simple sleeping cottage, a unique roof water-capture system, and a “smart,” weather-based irrigation system. The result was a team effort that produced an award-winning garden that was beautiful, functional, and sustainable.

The judges commented:It’s a real garden—excellent, clever, inspirational, thought provoking, great sense of depth, well-defined spaces, authentic structures,
