Detail of "Cornus Cocoon" by Joshua Werber, both First Place and People's Choice winner. 

On View through July 31

This year's Planters:  ON+OFF The Ground X was an exciting afternoon of the most imaginative and creative container gardens.  The competition was fierce and our judges Tony Ingrao and Randy Kemper had their work cut out for them to pick the best of the best.  

Joshua Werber of Brooklyn, NY took home the first place ribbon with his spectacular "Cornus Cocoon" AND the People's Choice Award!  

Geoffrey Nimmer of Geoffrey Nimmer Landscapes with Rusted Rebels received the second place ribbon with his stunning planter, "Illusion." 

Two Honorable Mention ribbons were awarded to Madeleine Piro of Sea Scapes of L.I. for her "In Memory of Molly" and to Dennis Schrader of Landcraft Environments Ltd for his "Untitled" planter.

We thank all of our participants for the most wonderful creations as well as our sponsors, RB Irrigation, Whitmores, Ray Smith & Associates, and gardeneering.
