Triple winner at Canada Blooms 2011
Canada Blooms, CARAS, Landscape Artists and JUNO-nominated Artists created the "JUNO Rocks" Gardens tribute at 2011's exhibition, a very personal interpretation of 'Rhythms' and music.
Judith S Wright and Premier Landscaping & Design created 'Welcome to Ben’s world' - a garden inspired by Ben Heppner. Ben’s life is spent much on the stage so it was natural for Ben to choose a garden scene from one of his favourite operas, Parsifal, by Richard Wagner.
Judith Wright, who also designed Ben’s own garden, knows Ben well. The words given to Judith were, “Opera is bigger than life, bold — and the scene should have a tree!” (Ben invariably sings under a tree). Not an easy task given the small space; however, Judith uses the backdrop to create a dark forest scene and bring to life a small part in 3D. Whilst on a stage the scene would be bigger, but Judith wanted to create an intimate space allowing the audience a closer link to Ben’s world.
We're delighted that the Ben's World garden won three awards:
> Most Imaginative Garden Design
> Sheridan Nurseries Award for Outstanding Garden Small Size
> Our People's Choice "JUNO ROCKS" garden
