What can we learn from Australian garden designers — their life stories, the work that they do, the ideas that underpin it?
Plenty! Garden Voices is a voyage of discovery, especially when the designers are historic figures and current practitioners, well-known and less well-known.
Drawn from around Australia, they create private gardens and public landscapes that fit the place(s) where they work — and that respond to the land, the soil, and the aspect, whether city or country.
They are creative, artistic, responsive — and practical. This book shares their message in the hope that readers will learn from it.
