Each year we choose a theme for our landscapers to follow in their Showcase Garden plans. This helps to create fresh and unique gardens for the show visitor to see, but with continuity that makes sense! It also forces the landscapers to think a little outside the box...which is never a bad thing.
The 2013 Showcase Garden Them is: "It's Elemental!"
There are 5 basic elements of nature: earth, fire, wood, water, and metal. Each designer will explore uses of these elements within their outdoor spaces. They will also implement a conservation element, relevant to today's living environments...to give Mother Earth the extra boost she needs to continue to thrive for many generations to come!
