This was my favorite garden at Chelsea this year. I loved the risk they took putting in such a large lawn. The result was spectacular. Americans who garden tend to garden around existing lawn, so this design really struck a chord with me, showing that having a lawn doesn't mean the garden has to look simply "suburban". Just lovely.
