California Landscape Contractors Association Award
San Francisco Botanical Garden Society at Strybing Arboretum Award

STATEMENT:

We are Inspired by the boatyards of the Northern California coastline. Like these yards, we use materials that are readily available, practical, and that we can find at low cost. These materials include discarded decks, arbors, play structures, tailings, and concrete forms, and many, many fence boards. We bind these materials with metal fasteners and use them in new ways to create space, pattern and texture in our garden. Inspired by marine spirit, practical materials and modern lines, our garden introduces a refreshing style to the Bay Area garden.

AWARDS:

  • San Francisco Botanical Garden Society at Strybing Arboretum Award – Garden that best demonstrates best practices in sustainable materials, water use, and design.

  • California Landscape Contractors Association Award – Exhibit that best demonstrates the integration of horticulture with structures and other hardscape elements of fine craftsmanship.
