5 Favorites: Past Gardenista Considered Design Awards Winners

June 20, 2017

To mark the countdown of our 2017 Considered Design Awards submission deadline (note: you have three full days left to enter), we’re reaching into the archives to share some of our favorite winning projects from past years.

Browse below for inspiration, then Enter the Gardenista Awards by midnight Pacific time on Thursday, June 22. It’s free and easy to enter; see our Prizes, Rules & FAQs page for full details.

Above: The winner of our first-ever Best Outdoor Living Space contest (a category that’s open to everyone), Gail Wall Morris reconfigured the floor plan of her suburban cottage so every room would open onto her outdoor dining courtyard. Photograph by Derek Robinson.
Above: Alexandra Tasker Marx won our (now-retired) urban garden category back in 2013, but the project would be a perfect fit for this year’s Best Curb Appeal contest, which is open to both amateur and professional designers. Marx built a stuccoed perimeter around her LA home, and planted a hedge of fruitless olives in front of it.
Above: This New Canaan, Connecticut landscape won our 2013 Best Hardscape category, which is open to both professional and amateur designers. Architects Specht Harpman worked with Gunn Landscape Architecture on the modern design.
Above: Our 2015 Best Professional Landscape award went to Outer Space Landscape Architecture for this modern San Francisco garden with bocce court, dining area, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, edible garden, and butterfly habitat.
Above: Rob Maday Landscape Architecture won our Best Edible Garden contest in 2015 for this Santa Barbara cottage garden for a family of East Coast transplants.

Don’t forget. Enter the Gardenista Awards and Remodelista Awards by midnight Pacific time on Thursday, June 22. Readers in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada (except Quebec) are welcome to enter in the appropriate categories. For more information, see our Prizes, Rules & FAQs page.
