Awards and Judge Comments

Very clean, simple, attractive layout, well executed. I'd prefer that the pebbles in front were a little darker, as the bright white pulls the eye away from your lovely planting.

Karen Randall

An effective elongated triangular layout that uses driftwood and rocks to good effect. The small white stones on the black substrate is a bold move but I like it. Some more transition from the broad fern leaves to the fine Blyxa and Lilaeopsis would have to good to see. Good job!
