Open Gardens Australia - Commemorative Garden Competition
National Arboretum Canberra
A selected panel of garden designers and landscape architects were invited to submit designs for this new addition to the Arboretum. The designers were asked to draw inspiration from the theme 'artistry of gardens' and to reflect the goals shared by the Arboretum and OGA.
The winning design concept by HHL for the garden fulfills the 'artistry of gardens' theme and will feature a grassed marquee space, a bird bath and various seating and paved areas. It contains a mixture of Australian and exotic plants, reflecting the diversity of gardens that were showcased by Open Gardens Australia.
