Unique or Unusual, Grand Award by GreenScapes Landscape Co., Inc., Columbus, OH. For this one-of-a-kind request, the client at the Franklin County Community Garden wanted a live fire theatre installed. The challenge was to create an area that allowed for demonstrations using five different methods for cooking with fire. The space had to be large enough for local gatherings and had to incorporate greenery, like the sedum roof visible on the top of the pizza oven. The Rumford insert and stone on the outdoor fireplace were constructed by hand, and includes a plaque identifying the fire theatre. Knockout roses add a simple beauty, while also working to keep visitors out of the garden beds. Copper beeches were chosen for their color in order to blend with the dark brick in the nearby buildings, and Kentucky coffee trees will provide shade in future years without outgrowing the space.
