Canada Blooms is a big promotional opportunity for landscape designers and contractors, as they outdo each other to make the jazziest booths. Robert Boltman and Alex Bartlett of BSQ. Landscape Design, known to TreeHugger readers for their shipping container office, tackle that other meme of the moment, pallet architecture, with their presentation this year.
It is all very humorous and clever, with planters, water features, an observation tower and upside down umbrellas.
Robert Bolton mentioned that it is really just a display, that you couldn't build outside with untreated pallets. These ones, filled with herbs, are lined so that there would be no contact between the herbs and the treated pallet wood.
Robert built a nice little office for himself into the base of the tower.
It really was the most spectacular booth in the show; see it at Canada Blooms until March 25.
