By April 1, 2011

Woodland-based Andy Gagnon Landscapes, winner of the 2010 California State Flower & Garden Show “Best in Show,” will return again this year with another landscaped display garden in the competition.

Gagnon and his team had three days to complete their garden display.

“Every member of the company had to be working on it simultaneously,” Gagnon said in a news release. “Masons, carpenters, designers, supervisors, secretaries, laborers and a foreman all worked together moving plants, building walls and placing stones to complete the award-winning garden,” concluded Gagnon.

Gagnon and his team will return with another beautiful and creative display garden to be judged by the public and industry professionals during the show. Gagnon promises that his garden “will be able to tickle all your senses.”

The first 500 paid attendees will receive a free heirloom tomato plant.
