A new book takes a closer look at Australian gardens
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.
