Ur­ban de­sign and coun­try charm

The Western Star - - TV GUIDE -

MICHAEL McCoy, one of Aus­tralia’s lead­ing land­scape de­sign­ers, is back in a new eight-part se­ries.

In each episode, Michael (pic­tured) charts the evo­lu­tion of a gar­den from de­sign plan through con­struc­tion to the spec­tac­u­lar end re­sult.

Mark and Ni­cola Ruiten­berg (also pic­tured) want to trans­plant their love of the gritty, ur­ban de­sign style to their new gar­den in Coffs Har­bour.

But all they have to work with is a slimy, heav­ily shaded pa­tio, a steeply slop­ing back­yard and a bud­get that doesn’t ac­com­mo­date ex­pen­sive re­tain­ing walls.

Will a gar­den built from waste con­crete, re-pur­posed steel and in­dus­trial ma­te­ri­als sit com­fort­ably in a lush, sub-trop­i­cal coun­try set­ting?
