Awards and Judge Comments

Nice display, with bold strokes. It looks like it needs to geow in a little more.

Karen Randall

Your rock work is good. Your root work is good. Your upward branches are too sparse or need more plants to make that area a little heavier to balance the scape. The floaters are a bit distracting as they become the focal point. Your crypts add color, yet are placed too linear in your design. Perhaps a one or two in front would have added some color in the front and softened the color addition to the entire scape.
