A new book takes a closer look at Aus­tralian gar­dens

Inside Out (Australia) - - Out -

In his 30 years in the in­dus­try, gar­den de­signer Michael Bates has seen it all. In The New

Aus­tralian Gar­den, he de­tails how our in­ter­est in in­te­rior de­sign has led to a more ar­chi­tec­tural ap­proach to our gar­dens. This ta­pes­try of red sand­stone gar­den beds in­spired by tec­tonic plates and fea­tur­ing blue fes­cue, card­board cy­cads and pony­tail palms, is the re­sult of a project by Michael, land­scape ar­chi­tect Vladimir Sitta of Ter­ra­gram and ar­chi­tect Luigi Ros­selli.

Im­age from The New Aus­tralian Gar­den by Michael Bates with pho­tog­ra­phy by Ja­son Busch ($59.99, Mur­doch Books).
