Smith and Hawken

I don't want to say, because it sounds like an over-used cliche, that this garden launched us into space but it did. The amount of attention that we received from the public as well as from our peers made this one of the most rewarding projects we have ever worked on. From this garden, we got Ouisies and the Cotton Club and on and on and on. During our run, it's safe to say that we planted every type of annual flower known to grow in Houston and we loved every minute of it.

I don't want to say that this garden launched us but it did. We designed, built, and cared for this garden until Hurricane Ike blew the pergola down. David Morello
