I had the great opportunity to participate in a landscape designer only day at the Dayton, OR production facility for Monrovia. They had a contest for who could design the best 10×10 garden using samples of their new plant material. We were the only group that created a symmetrical English-garden inspired design. In less than 10 minutes with four designers, our team won!
I also had the fortune to try my hand at ‘crafting’ a spiral topiary in 15 minutes or less. Needless to say, I had a little help from their expert craftsman at the end to shore up the Picea.
