Lauren G. won the “Best in District” award. What started out as a project to halt the rush of soil down a steep front slope, turned into a multi-hued garden with a view from the top. Lauren decided to renovate her front slope and landscape by installing retaining walls surrounded by beds of colorful blooms. She lined the staircase that zigzags through the hillside with a variety of potted succulents; bright orange Poppies, lush green Jade, silvery Ghost Plants and Purple Heart Tradescantia dot the slope. The result is an explosion of color. “What fun to have a beautiful garden and a sweet place to sit and contemplate it all!” said Lauren.
