Litke Greenhouse and Nursery is Knoxville, Tennessee's agricultural supplier. They specialize in commercial and home-based plants, ranging from orchids and roses to dogwood and jasmine trees. Ros Litke, owner, sponsored a project to create a year-round garden and showcase that would serve multiple purposes:
• A greenhouse that could hold plants
• An educational facility for classes and seminars
• A marketing piece that could gain national attention
• A tourist destination for gardeners, photographers, and local residents
The project scope called for the design and installation of a large greenhouse like no other facility in the Southeast. The greenhouse simulates a lush Smoky Mountain cove with adult trees, younger saplings, indigenous plants, a water feature with rainbow trout, and a limited amount of birds. The project was dubbed "Snapshot of East Tennessee" because it reflected the ideal East Tennessee environment.
