Inspired Exteriors were invited to exhibit at the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show (MIFGS) in 2017 producing a streamlined modern getaway with traditional roots that Graham Ross described on Better Homes and Gardens as ‘the only garden designed and delivered with a Chelsea Flower Show standard’.

The use of sandstone and bluestone combined to create a palette that was sophisticated, calming and reflective.

The pavilion of this garden had water cut stone panels as the roof giving picture frame glimpses to the ever-changing sky. Water ran down the rear grey sandstone feature wall around the dining pavilion and down past the central path that was surrounded by reflective raised ponds and a mixture of structured and perennial planting in deep purples and whites.

We acknowledge and pay respects to Traditional Owners across Australia and the Torres Strait as the original custodians of these unceded lands.

We recognize and respect Traditional Owners continued connection to the land, water, sky and people, and their responsibilities of caring for Country.

We pay respects to Elders past and present whose knowledge and wisdom ensures the continuation of culture and traditional practices, and we appreciate their guidance when it is shared with us.
