2014 Yard, Garden, and Patio Show Photo Review
Well, we are excited to have completed our most ambitious endeavor yet at the Yard, Garden, and Patio Show just a few weeks ago. With months and months of planning, the All Oregon Landscaping team put up a display that left most show-goers swooning. Complete with spaces for everyone in the family, this landscape design was polished, refined, and well thought out. Tony Prunty created the “hardscape layout” of the garden’s base and Elida Rivera finalized the design in a fabulous “team effort.” We are lucky to have both of them as part of the All Oregon Landscaping team.
The week leading up to the opening of the show is hectic at best, and it takes a lot of organization skills to pull off such a grand design implemented in four days. Thanks to Tony Prunty and our fabulous crew, our design came together right on time, and with every detail executed seamlessly. At the end of a long week of preparations, it is time for the judges to have their say.
The Judging Process at the Yard, Garden, and Patio Show
The judging process at the show is a bit different than you might think. Every display is set up without any signage or representation of which company has designed which display. The three judges were hand selected from outside the Portland Metropolitan Area. They are all professionals within the landscaping industry, such as published authors, landscape architects, horticulturalists, and highly sought after “guest speakers” that fully understand all of the elements that are essential in developing and implementing an award-winning garden. The judging was performed prior to the show opening to the public on that Friday morning. They judges were able to experience and critique each display and pour over the details and design elements implemented in each garden. In the end, the process of choosing which displays receive awards is done without any of the judges having any inkling as to who is responsible for each design.
The way the judging takes place makes us even prouder of winning both the Best in Show and Best Use of Space awards at this year’s Yard, Garden, and Patio Show. Let us know if you agree with the judges on our design, by checking out this photo gallery of selected images from our display.
