If you have a knack for garden landscaping (as well as lawn mowing), the recent Brisbane Garden Show was the place to enter your landscaping creations. Brisbane’s Pine Rivers Park in Strathpine played host from 8 – 11 October and blue skies abounded for the thongs of visitors to check out the displays of the Brisbane International Garden Show winners:
Gold Medal Winner & Best in Show: A&R Evergreen Brisbane Landscaping Services
Entitled “Backyard Evolution”, the gold medal winning landscaping design at this year’s Brisbane International Garden Show was designed by Clare James and Alistair Hutton of A&R Evergreen Brisbane Landscaping Services at 123 Boundary Rd, Rocklea.
Silver Medal Winner: Horticultural Training Pty Ltd
The theme of this design was serendipity and their design inspiration was infinity, longevity and good fortune.
Silver Medal Winner: SJ Landscapes and Marian Long Landscape Architecture
Saul Johnson is a multi-award winning Sunshine Coast Landscaper based in Sippy Downs near Buderim. The SJ Landscapes team specialise in out-of-the-ordinary structural work, retaining walls, pathways, pavers, decks, link block walls and sandstone. The team are members of QBCC, HIA, Landscape Queensland Industry Inc, Masters Builders Association and ilandscape.
Marian Long Landscape Architecture is an emerging landscape architectural practice noted for its novel approach to urban residential landscapes in Brisbane and Melbourne. Marian Long’s landscaping designs are interestingly influenced by her early career in film and television where her role involved designing and enhancing clever illusions for the camera.
Silver Gilt Medal Winner: Eden Landscape
Eden Landscape is a Division of the multi award winning Eden Gardens located in Carseldine, Queensland (with interstate locations in Victoria and New South Wales). The landscape design which earned them a silver gilt medal in this year’s Brisbane Garden Show was highlighted by vibrant orange accents together with rich, green, grassy lawn.
