Each garden has a material budget of $3000. Plant materials are in addition to this amount as they will be supplied by Andreasons Wholesale Nursery. The use of a minimal amount of garden fill is to be used in the construction phase. The use of altemative fills in garden beds i.e. polystyrene, boxes etc is to be explored. A 'Box' can be constructed to surround the perimeter of your site and to conceal your pots. This will need to be finished with materials from within your budget.
The construction will be completed by the landscape students of TAFE colleges. Each garden should be able to be constructed by a class of 15 students over a period of 3 days.
The design should include a minimum of 40% soft landscape. All plant material must be selected from the
Andreasons availability list supplied as part of this brief. Remember that you are designing a show garden and that it needs to look 'finished' for the show so you may need to use plants at a denser planting than for a permanent garden. Remember to consider pot size and concealing pots.
