2018 Show Information
Top landscape professionals put their work on display in unusual, idea-generating display gardens created by Marenakos Rock Center and Olympic Landscape. These gardens spotlight techniques and plant varieties that are both creative and inspiring.
Marenakos Rock Center’s “The ABC’s of How to Get Your Garden Done” uses cut-away visuals to spotlight the creation of a classic Northwest garden. In collaboration with the Washington Association of Landscaping Professionals (WALP), Marenakos’ garden illustrates the evolution of the perfect outdoor getaway.
From boulders to bamboo, the in-process garden will include an abundance of all-season Northwest plantings, a completed waterfall against a backdrop of column rocks, flagstone patio surrounded by green grass, and construction vehicles – including a crane ready to place a hefty boulder into position!
Buds & Blades Landscape Company, Casey’s Landscaping, Nature Perfect Landscaping, Sawdust Supply Company and JB Instant Lawn are participating in the creation of this thought-provoking garden.
It’s Viva Italia! as Olympic Landscape invites you to visit their classic garden retreat, “The Italian Job.” There’s no need to travel abroad – or leave the state – as you dream of the sights and sounds of Italy.
Take a stroll through the garden to enjoy the natural stone walls and steps, the beautiful fountain at center stage, the serene color palette of the plantings, and the intimate covered sitting area—you’ll find the need to ponder and soak it all in. One standout with a modern twist is the lush lawn that will always remain green and never need watering.
What was once classic is new again, and it is always fun to mix things up in the garden.
Every great landscape starts with a well thought out plan; be sure to ask the Olympic Landscape representatives for help and information about creating your own garden retreat designed just for you.
