Rural Australian Gardens
Like many of us, landscape designer Myles Baldwin dreams of living in the country one day. For Rural Australian Gardens, he travels from subtropical and temperate to alpine and arid regions around the country to find the best and most unusual gardens. From newly established gardens to those that have evolved over generations, he discovers that Australians' approach to their properties is as diverse and unexpected as the landscape itself - and that resourcefulness and a sense of place are essential ingredients in creating the most successful of them. As well as revealing the stories behind the gardens, Rural Australian Gardens also includes practical horticultural information on using trees, hedges, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers in rural settings around Australia.
