Gold Medals at San Francisco Flower and Garden Show!

It’s been a big week for us here at Restoration Landscaping building (and taking down) a garden at the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show.  It was really fantastic to meet fellow plant and bug enthusiasts, and we won a Gold Medal from the show, the American Horticulture Association’s award for Best Environmental Garden, and the Garden Conservancy’s award for a Garden that Ages Well.  

We also got some good press, including a live TV interview where I walk the reporter through our on-site science experiment and a front page article in the San Mateo Daily Journal.

This project would never have happened without Haven Kiers, one of our designer, and Travis Finfrock, our project manager and lead builder of the garden. Haven designed the layout and choose all the colors, angles, and plant placement, and Travis oversaw the building of the garden  and designed the pond, which in addition to looking beautiful is built to be an ideal habitat for dragonflies and butterflies.
