From the imaginings of emigrant garden-makers of the late 18th century to the concerns of 21st-century gardeners, this chronicle charts Australian garden design over four centuries. A handsome fusion of evocative images and rich text unearths the Australian aesthetic, weaving together social and cultural history across the wide extremes of the continent. With fresh insights and palpable passion, this book is a valuable source for both the sophisticated gardener and the garden admirer.
