InStyle were invited to attend the 2012 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show to construct another of the Student Gardens for the Landscaping Victoria 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 was 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 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!
