Description

Thousands of gardeners across Australia admire the Paul Bangay look. His gardens are balanced, with a careful use of space, proportion and above all, the right plant in the right location. In one garden precise pleached hedging meets billowing beds of perennials; in another, a rustic climber scrambles wildly up a trellis beside a formal rose garden; in still another, the planting is restrained to two kinds of natives only, as the landscape tumbles towards the sea. Paul Bangay's Guide to Plants offers an insight into how Paul chooses plants for specific locations and for specific purposes. Rich with anecdotes about what has worked and what hasn't over his years, and with a special focus on water-wise plants for our changing climate, this collection is Paul's A-list of plants. Whether for an inner-city courtyard or a rambling rural estate, this companion to the Garden Design Handbook contains the practical advice readers need to give their own patch of green the elegant Paul Bangay look.show more
