2014 GrowDown! The Great Tucson Garden Design Challenge
Small Gardens Big Ideas
The Tucson Botanical Gardens 2nd Annual Growdown! will be held from Wednesday, March 19 through Saturday, March 22, 2014. Three local landscape design professionals will go trowel-to-trowel in a three-day competition to transform an empty 15’ x 20’ plot at TBG into “the best” Tucson pocket garden. The theme, Small Gardens, Big Ideas, will emphasize creating a small, inviting and usable garden that would thrive under local desert conditions at a home with limited yard space.
