LANDSCAPE DESIGNER CHRISTOPHER NICHOLAS







UK-born landscape designer Christopher Nicholastook a little detour last year in Morocco. A client had commissioned him to travel there to source pots for their new garden.

During a trip around Australia, Ned Bailey decided he wanted to take a slight detour from his landscaping business when he returned home to Melbourne. So after 15 years of working as a landscaper, he turned his attention to outdoor sculptures and screens and created Desert Scapes. The process involves upcycling discarded steel and turning it into fences and fixtures around the garden. He continues...

garden designer richard unsworth






Richard Unsworth has a dream to open a sustainable farm/retreat where people can learn how to grow food, cook well and generally get some balance into their life. While he's a busy man, I think he might just do it. Already Richard has achieved a great deal by taking small but significant steps. He started out working in Parterre, then studied horticulture, worked on people's gardens, opened a...

Will Dangar has designed the Sydney garden of one of Australia's current day film icons. But he hasn't publicised the fact.

photographer & author simon griffiths






One of the great Australian book releases from last year was Shack by Simon Griffiths. It's one of those titles that makes you think, "Of course! I can't believe it hasn't been done before." Which is one of the key reasons behind why it's so good. The others are that it taps into part of Australia's history and culture, as well as celebrates the handmade and hotchpotch.

Simon Griffiths is a...

Today's giveaway is from Heaven In Earth, which could convert any brown thumb into a bona fide greenie. In fact, you don't even have to be either of those because Jocelyn Van Hoven's products extend to...

outdoor table & chair combos styling shoot






I just did another styling shoot today so my head is still in that space and I thought it was fitting to share some more images from the November issue of real living, which went on sale this week. I styled this outdoor table and chair feature months ago but because of scheduling it's only running now.

The day before the shoot I wasn't feeling well, and the morning of the shoot I was almost...

extra pics from floral garden shoot






Here are a few more pics from the floral garden shoot that I styled for the September issue of real living. Doing this project made me think that we really don't make the best use of our gardens. The idea behind the shoot was so simple - take a rug, some blankets and cushions outside and create a space to lay back and relax. As the weather is warming up, seems like a wonderful thing to do.
