Each year, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) awards professional awards to the year's best residential landscape designs. We have all eight winners from the 2011 competition, with entries ranging from a renovation of Philip Johnson's Beck House in Dallas to a cascade of terraces for a New York City apartment.
ASLA Award Winner Snake River Residence by Design Workshop, Inc. Jackson Hole, WY
