Last week, landscape pros brought their garden ideas to life at Tucson Botanical Gardens at the third annual Growdown! Garden Design Challenge.
Three finalists had just 24 hours over three days to build their designs.
Each entry is a pocket garden about the size of a carport. Participants received $1,500 from the botanical gardens, and could spend more if they wanted.
Over the three days, the finalists put their crews to work while visitors were invited to watch.
On March 21, a panel of five judges voted, the winners were announced and the gardens threw a party to celebrate. Visitors voted on the People’s Choice Award for both best Water Harvesting Feature and Garden Art Piece.
And the Growdown winners are…
