Silver-Gilt Medal Winner

Last year saw Sadie May Stowell design two gardens on behalf of Brand USA, however, this year, Sadie took one three gardens, including the ‘Great Gardens of the USA: The Oregon Garden’ which won a silver-gilt.

The garden took inspiration from the state’s natural landscape, which includes mountains, scenic gorges and a buzzing wine industry. The garden’s waterfall, a strong focal point of the design, was constructed by the largest boulder, weighing in at almost 4 tonnes.

At 98,000 square miles, the western state of Oregon has a diverse landscape, ranging from rain forests in the Coast Range to barren desert to the South, represented in Sadie’s planting scheme.
