A Winning Year

Articles: A Winning Year

The year 2000 brought Pacific Horticulture awards to three garden design firms participating in garden shows on the West Coast. Our awards program, begun in 1998, was established to help garden show visitors—and readers of our journal—to recognize and appreciate quality garden design and appropriate horticultural choices for West Coast gardens. Our awards at the Northwest and San Francisco Flower & Garden Shows are given to the gardens “best demonstrating the regional nature of garden design.” At the revitalized San Diego Spring Home/Garden Show, we bestowed the Horticulture Award to the garden presenting the highest level of horticultural excellence. Teams of professional designers, horticulturists, and experienced gardeners—all selected from the local community and, therefore, familiar with the region—selected the award-winning entries at each show on behalf of Pacific Horticulture. The winning offer a cross-section of garden design ideas representative of the three regions.
