Forest Edge Garden wins National Award of Excellence

Our Forest Edge garden was recognised at the AILA National Awards last week, and was the recipient of the AILA National Gardens Award of Excellence. The jury stated:

‘Design restraint is an important tool in the landscape architecture profession, and Forest Edge uses this tool to perfection. The approach has been to bring together the site’s geology, flora and aspect, along with the transitional patterns of fire and drought, to deliver a garden that draws its aesthetic appeal from the landscape in which it sits. The design focuses on resilience, from careful species selection to careful water management regimes.

Forest Edge maintains all the usual elements of a residential garden, but it delivers these in a way that brings long-term appreciation of the wider landscape and a desire to manage and protect its delicate ecological attributes.’
