Reseña del editor:

A comprehensive guide to achieving a perfect garden the Paul Bangay way, illustrated throughout with the lustrous colour photography of Simon Griffiths. One of Australia's foremost landscape designers shares his wealth of knowledge on all things practical to do with garden design and construction. The book covers everything from drawing a garden plan to building a retaining wall, and from fitting in a swimming pool to finding a lawn substitute and choosing drought-tolerant plants. The point-form text, constant signposting of subject matter and breakouts allow busy readers to access the information they need instantly, and the information is comprehensively illustrated throughout with diagrams, step-by-step instructions and plant lists. This book is empowering: it gives readers an understanding of the first principles of good design, how to analyse a site and its needs, how to use space and visualise a garden, how to decide on and build the hard and soft landscaping suited to a particular garden style, and what jobs can be done by the home handyperson and what needs to be left to a professional. Above all it shows readers that it's possible to garden successfully and responsibly in the water-challenged environments we live with now.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
