Greeting each visitor to the show was an outstanding outdoor room designed by Organic Mechanics.  This four-sided, succulent covered structure sat in the center of a shallow pool.  Access to the interior of the structure was a series of informal stepping stones across the pool.  As one passed through the wooden arch, an intimate dining table was set for a meal unlike any other.

Sedums, Echeverias, Crassulas and Aeoniums were just a few of the species of succulents that formed bold, fluid strokes of varying color and texture.

In the same garden, Rinehart playfully uses spent wine corks as mulch for potted Cork Oaks.

Mariposa Gardening and Design, of the East Bay, imagined and tactfully created a garden entitled "In the Papillion Pad". The garden used salvaged materials and modern lines to create a chic garden that begged to be experienced.
