"Jason, great thought on ASLA fancy booths... On a side note, I will have to keep the frills to a minimum this year in my booth to encourage all to get down to business like you noted.  Thanks for the thought."

"I do like the ASLA expo, usually spend 6~8hrs on that floor (cursory view through the whole floor, then saying hello to the reps we work with and then more in-depth Q&A on new products) - making contacts and following up later.  For…"

Pin up dollies at a landscape trade show?

Well, I thought the pin-up gal on the garage monkey's wall was so like 1985 along with those Patrick Nagel prints, until I went to work my booth at the GIE show in Louisville, KY.  17,000 attendees, and my Monrovia booth filled with beautiful living plants looked so awkward in a room filled with brightly colored, male-marketed equipment and in some booths, paid female props, beer and 'brauts all dancing about on dealer night. The pink snow plow for breast cancer, well, was kind of cool, but I…See More

"Great question... the information is so old on-line, and for landscaping so designed for a monoculture rather than a multicultural population of plants.  The best information of course is through your Cooperative Extension Office in your region…"

Matthew Stubbs replied to Katharine Rudnyk's discussion 'To count or not to count your plants?'
"The thing I run across a lot is a note that basically says that "plant quantities are provided as a courtesy, contractor to verify quantities". So even though the quantities gave been calculated, I as the contractor have to count them…"

Bottoms Up or a Tops Down?

Knowing what the plant's mature height and width will be for a project, do you design with the desired container size in mind or the preferred range of height and width of a specified plant? For trees, design professionals always specify the caliper width along with the container size, but I rarely see on the West Coast a range of desired height and width sizing on planting plans for plants.  Why is that?  I have attached 2 images:  #1 Star Jasmine at standard, or as the trade calls it "retail…See More

Tosh K replied to Katharine Rudnyk's discussion 'Bottoms Up or a Tops Down?'
"Agreed.  We also add additional notes if we're looking for a more 'special' plant (symmetry, leaders, # of canes -if we want more than the ANLA standard requires, branching height, etc)."

Katherine, is there a number where I can reach you?

GOOD AND BAD....
good because it raises the profile of the profession...
bad because it minimizes what excellent designers need to know to become great...

Geez, haven't been told that since I was a young man. Thanks.
There is no indication on my page that we are friends, looks like I'm going to have to contact the powers that be and raise a bit of a ruckus.
With that said, once we are friends on my page, I'll send some thought on the judging, as per your request.
