Urban design and country charm
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?
