N.B.: Curious to know who’s winning? We reveal the rankings when you vote in each category.

An Oasis in the City

Guest judge Erica Tanov admired the &#8\2\20;highly textural and mysterious quality&#8\2\2\1; of amateur gardener Anne&#8\2\17;s Oasis in the City project. &#8\2\20;I want to get lost in this garden,&#8\2\2\1; she says.
Above: Guest judge Erica Tanov admired the “highly textural and mysterious quality” of amateur gardener Anne’s Oasis in the City project. “I want to get lost in this garden,” she says.

Country Garden in the Berkshire Hills

Above: Erica chose amateur gardener Betsy’s Country Garden in the Berkshire Hills as well, noting how “the winding stone paths and the perfectly untamed flora create an intoxicating, magical atmosphere in this mature garden.”

Floral Serendipity in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana

Above: “I love the cacophony of color and interesting choice of flowers with varying height levels in this lush garden,” says Erica of amateur gardener Kielian’s Floral Serendipity in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana project.

Northern Family Garden

Above: Gardenista editor Michelle Slatalla picked amateur gardener Rebecca’s Northern Family Garden as a finalist. Says Michelle of the family-friendly garden: “A thoughtful design that welcomes children as well as adults into an edible garden creates space for a family to grow gracefully.”

Quintessential Connecticut Country Property

Above: Michelle also picked the Quintessential Connecticut Country Property, which its owners call Davis Farm. She especially admired the way the “restrained palette, relying on many textures of green, and the use of local materials to build low stone walls welcome a circa-1827 house to the 21st century.”
