Award Season: 2019 Northwest Flower & Garden Festival

In 2019, GardenComm (formerly Garden Writers of America) awarded its first Outdoor Living Award at the Northwest Flower & Garden Festival in Seattle. The winner was Nature Perfect Landscape for their garden display "Mystic Garden," a stylized Chinese garden with an intriguing moon gate entrance and impressive driftwood dragon by artist Jeffro Uitto"
I love how the forced perspective makes the white stone in the distance appear to be even farther away. I think it is meant to represent the city of Seattle.
I was honored to judge alongside fellow GardenComm members, television garden legend Ed Hume and Personal Garden Coach Christina Salwitz.

GardenComm decided that the Outdoor Living award would be looking for “a display garden that exhibited the most beautiful, creative and educational ideas to encourage effective use of horticulture and design for functional outdoor living environments.” The display gardens would be scored on "beauty, inviting design appealing to all the senses; creativity, unusual use of materials, such as up cycling; and ecological education, demonstrating earth friendly practices like green roofs, water retention and use of natives plants."
Congratulations, Nature Perfect Landscape on winning the first award from GardenComm!
