After teaming up to create this pretty-but-practical space
at Garden Week 2010, these creative friends joined forces
WORDS Beth Muhling
utting the ‘soul’ back into Perth
gardens is the name of the game at
Empire Lane, says owner Monica
Palmer. She and business partner
Ceri Wagnell are bringing colour, fragrance
and ambience back to our outdoor spaces,
with a thoughtful use of space and a gift
for bringing beautiful old favourites back
with a contemporary twist.
Empire Lane was born after Monica and
Ceri, who’d both been running their own
landscaping businesses, teamed up to create
this display garden for Garden Week 2010 in
April at Perry Lakes Reserve.
Monica, from MP Landscape Designs, and
Ceri, from Botanic Blueprint, designed the
In the Pink garden, which won awards
for Best Landscape Display and Grand
Champion Display. They had previously
teamed up at Garden Week 2009, but this
year was so successful they decided they’d
go into business together as Empire Lane.
As its name suggests, pink was a strong
element in the garden, which was dedicated to
Ceri Wagnell and Monica Palmer. ABOVETheir
