Australian landscape design is eclectic but there is no doubt that we love to be outdoors, and with the population set to rise, whether we like it or not we will be left with smaller and smaller outdoor spaces in which to enjoy our way of life. Considering the whole of site as the canvas for indoor/outdoor living means we can get the best use of every square centimetre of space. Not everyone has the luxury of designing their site from scratch and this book will inspire the reader to see what can be created in restricted spaces. The book is divided into two parts: 'Gardens', an inspirational section which features 14 gardens - ranging from small contemporary courtyards to more traditional gardens that respect the era of the home; and 'Elements', a more practical section which discusses both natural elements and designelements and how they work together to create a beautiful garden.
