Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show 2011 – Gold

Entitled ‘Reflections’, the design for this garden was influenced by the struggle that some individuals have with anxiety and depression and the journey that they go on through the healing process. It was Dean’s desire is to tell a story through this design and to raise awareness to this cause, each element representing part of the journey.
Awarded a Gold Medal, Best in Show, Gold Medal – Outstanding Landscape Design and the Mark Bence Best Construction Award, this garden was truly a stand out of the show.
The look and feel of the garden has been designed to be one of a relaxing atmosphere whilst still having a structure of strength as the centre piece. Several different spacial elements, including lounge area with fireplace and curved roof, reflection pond and outdoor bathroom, have been brought together to form one cohesive design.
