Savanna Garden Wins Best of Show
“Savanna” by Rock & Rose Landscapes & Greenlee & Associates, won the Best of Show award – and the Garden Creator’s award at the San Francisco Garden show yesterday. I wasn’t surprised. It’s a really beautiful landscape environment with tall grasses and reeds. There was also a raffle to win the garden with the proceeds going to San Francisco Botanical Garden at Strybing Arboretum.

We were wowed by this fountain
There are some really terrific show gardens at this year’s San Francisco Garden Show. A tremendous amount of work went into them. There were a few that really stood out. The judges were looking for a garden that was well-designed and well built. looked for gardens with interesting plants that fit their environment. More than that, they were looking for a garden that had wow factor and a soul. Here are some pictures of some of the gardens and some details.
