My Garden Show Favorites

I’m heading back to the Northwest Flower & Garden Show in a couple of hours – it’ll be my last visit.  This makes me sad but I’m exhausted. Before I go, I thought I’d pass along some of my garden show favorites from the display gardens. These are the features in the gardens that spoke to me most.

First, a little video of the water drums. How cool would it be to have these in your garden?

Here are some more creative ideas found in the display gardens:

Wood & Wine Bottle Border: Innovative Landscape Technologies


Wine Bottles Help Warm the Soil: Innovative Landscape Technologies


Twig Fencing: Innovative Landscape Technologies


2X4 Walkway: Innovative Landscape Technologies


Bug Hotel: Innovative Landscape Technologies

If it’s not clear on how much I want a insect habitat,here’s a short video by my friend Bren:

Stone Bench: Washington Association of Landscape Professionals


Natural Stone Bird Bath: Washington Park Arboretum


Blind for Bird Watching: Washington Park Arboretum


Raised Bed w/Bench: Artistic Garden Concepts

  2. It is exhausting, isn’t it? I’m taking today off and going back tomorrow. I have some of almost the exact same pictures!

    • Great minds think alike! Do you have yours up yet? I haven’t had a chance to flip through everyone’s pictures yet. I had a wonderful time. I’m surprised our paths didn’t cross! Maybe they did – I walked around w/ tunnel vision most of the time.

  3. I appreciate getting your view of the show. Thanks for all the effort of taking photos and putting them up so fast. Helpful for those there and those, like me, marooned in another state! You have such a good eye. Hope you and the Wellies have a fun last day at the show!

    • Charlotte, I love this show (can you tell?) – you should come up next year!! I can’t wait to see your pictures of the San Francisco show. I’ll be viewing it through your eyes.
