Herbs, vegetables, strange flowers and rogue weeds pioneer tiny cracks in the urban landscape.”

CMG Landscape Architecture

The Crack Garden, made by the Californian office CMG Landscape Architecture, was one of the works awarded in the ASLA 2009 Professional Awards, the present award of the American Society of Landscape Artists. The idea is interesting and contrasts with the other awarded proposals; most of them being conventional and/or sumptuous. Flowers, weeds and grass usually grow between the cracks of the ground in backyards and sidewalks, but here the cracks were intentionally made, reproducing at home traces of uncontrolled landscapes.
