Garden Voices is the first book to embark on a study of designers who demonstrate a deep understanding of the Australian environment and an ability to work creatively with it. It provides an invaluable overview of 19 key garden and landscape designers of Australia.
Anne Latreille traces their life stories and achievements. They comprise historic figures, current practitioners, some well-known, others much less so. They work in lush tropical forests and chilly mountains, arid deserts and rolling countryside, beside rivers and the sea, in close-packed inner cities and spreading suburbs. They fit each garden design to its place, respecting the natural landscape character.
Garden Voices moves us inside the designers' hearts and minds and shows how Australian energy and imagination can be transformative, inspiring and progressive. With research extending over fourteen years, it is a vital reference for anyone – from professional designer to garden lover – who seeks a broader understanding of designing gardens in Australia.$59.99
