Plants should be somewhat mature and in the most picturesque time of the blooming cycle. Day or night, choose a time that will produce the optimum light/shade combination.

Vote for Planting Photos


Provide photos that show the beauty and depth of your design. We'd love photos with the irrigation running, but the irrigation plan along with photos is also acceptable.

Vote for Irrigation Photos

Hardscape & Details

Choose your most intricate, detailed (pun intended) creations. Submit photos of the finished site along with the actual details you created with Land F/X and used in your design.

Vote for Hardscape & Details Photos


Our best tip for winning this category: Use a third-party rendering engine for SketchUp or Rhino. Then complement your site photo with your high-quality rendering.

Vote for 3D Photos


Give us your top-shelf top-floor perspective of your site. Whether your vantage is from a drone, helicopter, or even a tall building, make the view as close to bird's-eye as possible.

Vote for Aerial Photos
