With Nature is an inspirational look at garden design and landscaping.
In this beautifully photographed book, Fiona Brockhoff takes us through her gardens in Australia – some never before seen – with tips, design guidance and inspiration to help you create your own sustainable, naturalistic and wholistic gardens. From small-space inner-city gardens to coastal and rural properties, Fiona's work is full of new and creative ideas.
Fiona Brockhoff’s name has become synonymous with environmentally sustainable garden design in Australia. Her adventurous use of native plants clipped like topiary, exotic plants climatically suited to locations and use of texture gives her gardens a very distinctive flavour. Often using indigenous plants with colours like muted grey, silver and olive green, she uses shape and form to create spaces rather than short-lived flower colour. Most of her gardens survive on the rain nature sends them and are relatively low maintenance, with the exception of vegetable gardens and chicken runs, which she encourages clients to include.
With Nature will surprise and delight, with its inspiring ideas and planting styles designed to challenge the norm.
