ASLA 2010 – Wally’s Here!

Sep 10, 2010


Stephanie, our Resident Expert On All Things Woolly, sends us this dispatch from Washington DC where she is attending the
ASLA 2010 Annual Meeting & EXPO!

We are super thrilled to be included in Garden Design Magazine’s “Ultimate Outdoor Home” at this year’s ASLA EXPO.  Landscape Architects, if you haven’t seen Woolly Pockets in action yet, this is your chance! Just look up and keep an eye out for the giant living chandelier (off to the right when you walk in).  We’ve also crafted a double-sided living wall in the “Lounge” area, adding a bit of privacy under the shady pergola.

AND our Pockets (along with the rest of the UOH) are brimming with beautiful Monrovia plants.  Be sure and check out the first crop of their fab new blueberry in the garden!

In case you’re curious, here are the plant lists for the walls.  On the Lounge side, we wanted to create a soothing, shade tolerant meadow of grasses and grass-like perennials.  On the Hedge side, a sunnier habitat garden – an excellent backdrop for your vegetable plot perhaps!  Almost everything is appropriate for Washington DC’s Zone 7, a good thing as we’re sending these walls to nearby schools and parks after the show (recycling is kinda our thing)!
