2013 Student Design Finalists announced

Judges announced the four finalists of the 2013 Plantmark MIFGS Student Design Competition this week. The four finalists Lee Bailey, Meg Geary, Renee Visentin and Peta Donaldson were shortlisted from a strong field of entries to have their designs constructed for the 2013 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show. The theme for the competition was the Bush Fire Suburban Garden drawn from the CFA’s Landscaping for Bushfire Guide. Congratulations to all entrants and finalists.

Designer Accreditation

A sub-committee of the board are drafting up guidelines for a new accreditation system for landscape designers that will include a code of ethics, continuing professional development and an agreed language for landscape design plans. This will be great for assisting the public in understanding what they are purchasing and will give valued credibility to our designer members.
