Gardening Australia's John Patrick and Jenny Wade take you on a tour of some of Australia's most beautiful gardens, ranging from courtyards to country, and introduce you to the personalities and design practices of our top designers. Jamie Durie, Paul Bangay, Peter Fudge, John Patrick, Janine Mendel, Rick Eckersley and many more demonstrate how they approach a design brief, assess a site and solve design problems. Each designer gives details of their planting schemes and final design decisions. They also offer design tips to help you overcome problems with your own garden. Beautifully designed and photographed, Contemporary Australian Garden Design will be a welcome addition to any gardener's library.
