Event: Ellerslie Garden Show, NZ

Eckersley Garden Architecture were kindly invited to re-build our Singapore Garden Display at the Ellerslie International Garden Show.  With the event launch on the 8th March, designer Scott Leung was in Christchurch constructing the display when the devastating earthquake hit on February 22nd. 

Thankfully Hagely Park was just out of the earthquake’s reach and most of the temporary infrastructure was undamaged.  All the people involved with the show including Scott, were unharmed.  With the assistance of the EIGSteam, Hagely Park became a refuge for those in need of food and shelter.  

Here are a few photos Scott took before his return to Melbourne last week.
