Ordered Nature – MIFGS 2013

This year we were asked to assist a new entrant, Christopher Gursansky, with his first Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show (MIFGS) display.

The design consisted of crisp formal lines, sophisticated and elegant, contrasted with the spontaneity of the wild flower gardens.  Avenues of Silver Birch reflect their trunks into the shallow river, pebble-filled ponds.  The garden is confident and decisive.

Christopher wanted to create a space which focused on simple beauty and immersing one’s self in nature.  There are no barbecues, televisions or kitchen sinks; the garden is organic and refreshing…A natural outdoor room, where the sky is the roof and hedging creates the walls.

An outdoor room where life is the hero.
