12 Gardens: Creative designs for the Australian climate
In the harsh Australian climate, how do you create and maintain a beautiful yet waterwise garden? Jenny and Neil Delmage have been setting the standard in garden design for more than twenty years, creating sustainable, biodiverse, waterwise — and gorgeous — gardens. Their innovative ideas and tried-and-tested methods produce stunning gardens that fit the natural environment.
Both practical and beautiful, 12 Gardens features twelve new garden designs for residential, commercial and historic properties, and includes over 240 gorgeous photos, design plans, plant lists, soil types, orientation and client brief for each garden.
Praise for 12 Gardens:
Picture drought-tolerant gardens and most people think of beige, colourless plants. But flick through the pages of 12 Gardens by garden designers Jenny and Neil Delmage and there’s nary an uninspiring flora to be found. As much a coffee table book exploring some of Australia’s finest properties, 12 Gardens will provide green thumbs with ideas and information for their own backyards.WEEKLY TIMES
