I still think its accessibility in the US. How many of you UK guys can visit a local shop or a shop within a reasonable distance and find a good selection of plants and hardscape material? How many in Asia!? The market in the US is barely existent, so the scapers in the US do not have the opportunity to develop the way those in other regions do. And I'm with Liz, I want to see the "prototypical American scape".... how about typical scapes of other regions? Judging art is difficult as style and preference do not necessarily reflect skill.
