Michael Petrie’s HANDMADE GARDENS • P. O. Box 7, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania 19081 • 610.505.8262 •


The 2016 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show explored America and celebrated 100 Years of the National Park Service as major exhibitors including HANDMADE GARDENS were inspired to create garden spaces inspired by our National Parks.

  The title of our exhibit

for the 2016 Philadelphia Flower Show was

Tiny Park


A tiny house nestled in an abstract modern landscape serves as the Park Ranger's new station at Olympic National Park. The small-footprint office/residence provides a platform for creative solutions and reconsidered values as we search for healthier and better ways to work and live more sustainably in both society and nature.

In addition to our own exhibit,

we installed an exhibit for Tourism Ireland inspired by the 5,000-year old passage tomb New Grange; and an interpretive wildlife garden exhibit called Certify your Garden complete with a giant bird’s nest for Bank of America.
