The British garden designer is collaborating with NHGA Garden Designer of the Year, Andrew Fisher Tomlin on an inspirational garden titled September Sky, which will be displayed at the Show to be held in Sydney’s Centennial Park on 5-8 September.
Harfleet took out the gold medal at the prestigious 2013 Chelsea Flower Show for the Digital Capabilities garden designed with his brother Paul by their company Harfleet & Harfleet.
Harfleet and Fisher-Tomlin’s inspirational garden titled September Sky is the centrepiece garden of the Australian Garden Show Sydney. It will represent Australia’s never-ending landscapes and wide open skies, using typical Australian native plants.
Drawing on modern architecture and design, the feature of the piece is a cube that will reveal itself as cocoon to give an observatory view of the night time sky through an overhead portal. To add to the spectacle, light and sound will enable viewers to experience the landscape in an entirely different concept at night.
“It’s fantastic to see Australia perform so well on a world stage at such a prestigious event,” said Australian Garden Show Sydney Event Director, Anthony Bastic. “The Australian Garden Show Sydney will showcase local talent alongside influential international horticulturalists and provide the platform for gardeners, landscapers and designers to really make their mark.”
