Awards and Judge Comments

Second Place

Nice lines, lovely hardscape and an interesting use of color.

Karen Randall

Impressive growth of plants. The separation of two colors looks bit unbalanced. Rock should be selected carefully.

Inderjeet Singh Bansal

Gorgeous overall appearance. Great depth.Great use of space. Great hardscape. Good choice of plants. The Echinodorus tenellus blood helps tie the Rotala rotundifolia into the hardscape. In the midground there is a slight mix of too many plant varieties. The Myriophyllum matogrossense may be hard to maintain over the long term.

Drinda Jacobson

Amazing red stem school on the left and overall a very lovley layout.
