Here is our ‘feature garden’ display we set up this year for the 2013 Washington Home & Garden Show. Our display won the Best of Show award presented by HGTV’s Yard Crashers host, Ahmed Hassan. The display features a fire place and an outdoor kitchen, all custom veneered, complete with grill, stone counter tops, and pergola. We built two flagstone patios to show different color choices, Appalachian Gray and Autumn Brown. We set up a Nicolock permeable paver driveway display using eco-ridge pavers. The pavers are engineered to have a specific amount of separation between them to allow rain water to drain through the joints and percolate back into the soil. We designed several raised planter beds, framed with natural Pennsylvania fieldstone boulders and dry stacked walls. Along one of the walls is a built in stone fire pit. The plantings included a coral bark maple tree, PJM rhododendrons, heather, English laurels, and golden globe arborvitaes. We installed low voltage path and spot lights to illuminate the entire garden display.
