Garden 10Garden 10

Landscaped & Constructed by: FSG Property Group Landscape Division

Inspiration: The design for the Celebrations Retirement Show Garden is based on the look and feel of the Retirement Estate. The design itself draws inspiration from the everyday garden, a comfortable, homely and manageable space.

Using the plants specified for the estate, visitors to the show garden can draw inspiration on how to successfully utilise a smaller space, while keeping within guidelines and a specific style of architecture.

With ever shrinking living spaces, the Celebrations Show Garden aims to showcase what can be achieved.

Inspiration: What could be nicer on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Spring, than to wander through the garden where things flow naturally in whatever way they like. Enjoy and relish the small pleasures of life.

This country garden conjures up thoughts of romance, bumble bees, butterflies and lazy summer days. 

Picnic spots and playing games are usually places of joyful fun outdoors in a beautiful setting. A garden that will inspire one to create areas in one’s own garden for these pleasures combined with beautiful plants.

Name: Round… Like a Circle in a Spiral
Designed by: Carly Blankevoort

Garden 17Garden 17

Landscaped & Constructed by: Carly Blankevoort Landscaping

Inspiration: The lyrics to this beautiful song, “round… like a circle in a spiral” seemed most befitting taking into account this year’s evocative show theme; Sense of Place.

Life is a spiral from our conception; and is integral to every living being on the planet. In this garden you will encounter spirals from the paths spiralling like the arms in a galaxy, to the spirals in the planting scheme and even to the spirals in the petal arrangements.

Take time to observe and ponder as you meander through our garden paying attention to the vertical plantings and the hanging roof garden and enjoy our 'Sense of Place'.
