Modern Meets Boho

Our South Terrace—a 15-Year Project

Above: Amateur gardener John’s South Terrace project caught guest judge Brook Klausing‘s eye. “This minimal amount of material delivers the most impact by showing restraint,” he says.

Poolside Sanctuary

Above: The goals for Renée Byers Landscape Architect‘s Poolside Sanctuary project were twofold: Create a secluded, poolside landscape for entertaining and make it wheelchair-accessible. Says Brook of the finished project: “This summer playground is timeless. It feels open to new ideas without ever having to add anything other than seasons.”

Rose Lane

Above: Michelle chose Shades of Green Landscape Architecture‘s Rose Lane project as a finalist. “Stone pavers in colors of gray and blue complement the foliage of Mediterranean and succulent plants, creating harmony and a soft, hazy landscape that feels natural, not imposed,” she says of the design.

Woody Creek Garden

Above: Brook gave Design Workshop‘s Woody Creek Garden a rave review: “This hardscaping masterpiece delivers the most sophisticated introduction to the wild west without ever having to step out of your comfort zone.”

Have you chosen your favorite? Then head to the best Hardscape category page to vote.

Don’t forget to vote once per day in all contest categories on both Gardenista and Remodelista, now through August 3.
