Landscape designer Margie Ruddick is in the running for the 2011 Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award, and ironically, she’s also being faced with fines for the very landscape creations planted in her own yard! Ruddick’s ecological ‘Garden of Eden’ was found to be unkempt with “weeds” by authorities in the City of Philadelphia.
