Standouts were the beautifully designed chicken coop, complete with real chickens, landscape architecture firm Shades of Green’s booth covered completely in real sod, and oversize pebble–like outdoor seating by Eis Design, but every one of the elements on the floor helped bring home the fact that sustainable outdoor living is striking, smart and here for good.
