Awards and Comments

Larry Lampert Most Innovative Award
So many tanks ?
— Inderjeet Singh Bansal
Interesting concept. Perhaps if the tanks had been touching one another it would have been better. Seeing the soil banked up in between the tanks is a distraction. The middle tank needs a more interesting hardscape to be effective. The small rocks can't carry the three tanks. The pictures are taken from too far a distance to really judge the tanks.
— Drinda Jacobson
I did not know if its okay with the rules, because you have 3 tanks...but I like the idea and how pefect you did it. Congratulation!
— Oliver Knott
The idea is very original and perfectly executed, congratulations!
— Luca Galarraga
I didn't know quite what to do with this entry. It is eye catching, and innovative, but not a single tank. That, added to the fact that none of the photos gave me a close enough look at the structure of the planting made me leave it out of my top entries. That said, I really like it and can see how it would make a wonderful exhibit!
