Garden Design - Further Information

Many books dealing with Australian native plants will contain useful information on garden design. However, there are some more specialised titles that cover the topic in more detail. There are also a number of resources on the internet. Some of the most detailed references are listed below.

Books

Many books dealing with Australian native plants will contain useful information on garden design. The most relevant ones can be found in Jo Hambrett's article "Short History of Australian Garden Design". The two books produced by the Garden Design Study Group are particularly noteworthy:

  • Snape D (1992), Australian Native Gardens: Putting Visions into Practice. Lothian Publishing Company Pty Ltd, Melbourne.
  • Snape D (2002), The Australian Garden: Designing with Australian Plants. Blooming Books, Melbourne

Journals

Many issues of the Society's journal "Australian Plants" are particularly useful for those interested in garden design. Particularly relevant is the continuing series of articles called "My Garden". These describe (with text and photographs) native gardens developed by Society members - they provide lots of interesting ideas that can be implemented and adapted for other gardens.

The series commenced in the December 1988 issue.
