A panel of practicing professionals in landscape education, landscape architecture, and horticulture judged each entry based upon quality of design, appropriateness of materials used, and the superiority of the workmanship. Entries are not judged against each other, but rather against standards of excellence in the green industry.

Home Sweet Home was built on a sloped site adjacent to a wetland. The judges were impressed with the complexity and difficulty of the project which features a hot tub set in concrete, poolside putting green, and natural stone details.

"The difficulty of dealing with varying grades was achieved elegantly through walls and plantings," noted the judges. "The multiple elements and details puts this toward the top end of challenging projects." The project has also been honored with awards from NARI-MN and NALP.
