2016 MIFGS Boutique Gardens Competition - Bronze Medal

2016 was the first year InStyle Gardens had submitted our own design to be a part of the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show (MIFGS), entering into the Boutique Gardens competition.

This competition is sponsored by Landscaping Victoria and Warners Nursery, and is open to any individual or business who are a member of any of the state based landscaping associations (such as Landscaping VIctoria), a member of The Australian Institute of Landscape Designers and Managers (AILDM), Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) or students in the final year of studying landscape design or architecture.

Entrants submit a design, which are then shortlisted to five, which are built for the garden show to then be judged, and Instyle Gardens was one of the five finalists, eventually coming away with third place!

It was an amazing experience and certainly a lot different to building a students garden such as previous years. 

2012 MIFGS Student Design Competition - Gold Medal


InStyle Gardens were invited to attend the 2012 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show to construct another of the Student Gardens for the Student Design Competition, following our efforts the previous year where the garden we built was awarded a Bronze Medal.

The standard of designs submitted for the competition were arguably of a higher standard than the previous year, and InStyle Gardens were teamed up with Geelong designer Ross Uebergang. The other designers were from Melbourne and Sydney.

Judging was very close, however the garden built by InStyle Gardens was judged to be the best and awarded the Gold Medal. The Student Gardens weren't eligible to enter the Show Garden category this year, meaning there was only one Medal up for grabs for us.

It was without question a career highlight for everyone involved and it sowed the seed for us to design and build our own Show Garden in the future!
