Seven Gardenista winners will have their gardens or outdoor spaces profiled for Gardenista and Remodelista’s 1.2 million monthly unique readers.

Insider Tip: Competition is lighter in the three categories where we have the fewest entries so far: Best Garden Shed or Outbuilding (Professional); Best Professional Landscape; and Best Edible Garden (open to all).
