The Defined Garden

The Garden Design of Paul Bangay

by Paul Bangay and Simon Griffiths
Publication Date: 05/04/2004
This is a book full of inspirational gardens, created by one of Australia's leading landscape designers. With the support of Simon Griffith's superb photographs, Paul Bangay demonstrates and explains the elements of good garden design. For each garden he presents the owners' brief, the existing architecture, and the nature and problems of the site, and then discusses the development and successful execution of the plan. The book examines small courtyard gardens, larger suburban gardens, and country gardens in different states of Australia and also highlights Paul Bangay's larger, public and commercial projects and exhibition work, such as the Botanica installations for the Melbourne International Festival of the Arts. Readers will spend hours dreaming over the pages of this book - and in the process learn much about the art of designing a beautiful garden.
