Awards of Gold Medal Garden Creator and the California Landscape Contractors Association CLCA award culminated in a long adventure of creating a display garden for the 2011 SF Flower and Garden Show in San Mateo, CA. Kim Leichner was one of a team of four landscape designers including Tina Jauregui, Leslie Peluso and Corey Chetcuti. They set out to gain exposure for the Landscape Architecture program at West Valley College in Saratoga, CA. Beginning in Oct 2010 and ending with the build and the show in March 2011, it was an experience that exceeded their expectations.
We had the support of the following businesses and the people with them:
West Bay Landscape Co., LYNGSO, BORG Fence, Village Nurseries, Fuji Garden Center, Delta Bluegrass Co., SPJ Lighting Inc - Andrew Bolt, Wildcat Metals, SummerWinds Nurseries, Almaden Valley Nursery, North Coast Native Nursery, Zach Todd Photography, SIMS Metal Management, Bay Natives, Reusable Lumber and the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show.
Although this was NOT a course project we did solicit the guidance of West Valley College Faculty of the Landscape Architecture Department, Glenn Rock, ASLA.
