Vote for the Best Hardscape Project in Our Design Awards

July 27, 2017

Our judges have chosen the finalists, now you choose the winners. Vote for your favorite projects in our 2017 Considered Design Awards, once per day in each of the Gardenista and Remodelista categories. Voting closes at midnight on August 4, and winners will be announced on August 7.

Below, browse the finalists in the best Hardscape category—which is open to both amateur gardeners and professional designers—and then head to our awards page to Vote.

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

Open Range Project

Above: Open Range in Healdsburg, California, was designed by Blasen Landscape Architecture and chosen as a finalist by guest judge Deborah Needleman, who said this project has a “nice use of materials to form simple, practical walkways, walls, terraces, and pergolas that connect well both to the house and the landscape.” Photograph by Marion Brenner.

Desert Geometry Project

Stacking the Deck Project

Above: Arterra Landscape Architects submitted Stacking the Deck in San Francisco, chosen by Gardenista editor Michelle Slatalla: “A recycled shipping container sets just the right tone for this LEED platinum design: reuse, reclaim, relax,” she said. Photograph by Paul Dyer.

Kansas Street Residence Project

Above: The Kansas Street Residence in San Francisco was entered by DHD Damir Hurdich Design and chosen by Michelle Slatalla, who said: “By keeping hardscape details and plant palettes minimal and unobtrusive, the designers make a typically small San Francisco city backyard feel spacious.” Photograph by Marion Brenner.

Coxhead House Garden Project

Above: Jennifer Weiss Architecture submitted Coxhead House Garden in San Francisco, which was chosen by Deborah Needleman. She called the project “elegant, unobtrusive, and sculptural. All structural elements work seamlessly and blend well—providing both contrast and connection—with the overall planting scheme, so that together they form a unified, tranquil, and interesting space.”

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 4.
