The award presentations were held on September 28th at Star Nursery in Las Vegas and named Jennifer Margison a winner of the ‘Residential Design by a Professional’ category. “I’m honored to have been selected by the award committee for my work on the Martin Residence. This project is further proof that water-smart landscapes can be exciting, beautiful and unique. Bonnie and Frank Martin are wonderful clients and the Bitterroot Ranch has been the perfect setting to showcase our western themed design. It was a dream project where all elements of sustainability, creativity and imagination synthesized to create a magical setting.”
