All-America Selections’ 2020 Landscape Design Challenge faced unusual challenges this year, as did all live events planned for 2020. But the AAS Display Gardens are creative, determined, and resourceful so they reacted well when AAS adapted the rules of this year’s contest due to the COVID pandemic.
This year’s theme was “Make An Entrance” and reading the gardens’ stories below is sure to inspire all of us. For this challenge, AAS provided the gardens with recent AAS Winner seeds and plants. The gardens also had the option to incorporate older AAS Winners in their design to illustrate the theme. In a typical year, gardens are encouraged to generate publicity and hold events to share the story of All-America Selections and AAS Winners but alas, this year did not allow for that.
