Fancy a new look for the garden?

News release from Visique Optometrists
13 September 2006

Fancy a new look for the garden?

As spring arrives and the garden comes in for critical focus, there's an extra incentive to make a purchase or have an eye examination at Visique Optometrists: the chance to win a stunning new outdoor living area.

The competition celebrates Visique's lead sponsorship of the Ellerslie International Flower Show.

Award-winning designer Ben McMaster, who was commissioned to create the Visique garden, says the concept is for a "living space outside the home". The design involves clever use of planting and masonry walls to create distinct areas for private relaxation, entertainment, quiet contemplation and visual stimulation.

The garden will be displayed at the Ellerslie International Flower Show in November, and then recreated for the prizewinner, complete with plants, decking, barbecue and furniture.

The competition to win the Visique exhibition garden from the Ellerslie International Flower Show is open until 5 November 2006.
