    A lavishly photographed celebration of renowned Australian landscape designer William Dangar's unique and highly creative approach to garden making.

    William Dangar's Garden is a journey through a series of twenty-one inspiring, emotive and lyrical gardens. Each is photographed at its optimum moment - not when newly planted, but when nature has reasserted itself and there is a certain expressiveness, a sense of wildness, breaking through the original structure and order. Each project is described through Will's frank perspective, chronicling the challenges, the planting choices, the collaborations, the relationships and the joy that make these gardens significant.

    Our homes’ outdoor spaces can—and should—be as welcoming and carefully considered as our living rooms; when treated as extensions of our homes, these spaces enrich our lives immeasurably. That was the guiding principle when, under the direction of editor in chief Michelle Slatalla (whose New York Times style columns were weekly must-reads for a decade), the team behind Remodelista.com launched sister site Gardenista.com. Like Remodelista, Gardenista caters to an older, more established audience (75% of readers are over the age of 35) and is known for its sophisticated, well-edited aesthetic.

    The book contains lushly photographed tours of 12 enviable gardens; planting guides for a variety of climates and colour palettes; in-depth case studies on more than a dozen outdoor structures (from yoga studios to chicken coops); DIY projects and a guide to timeless everyday objects for the outdoors; plus advice from landscape professionals. Equal parts inspiration and expert intel, Gardenista is both a perfect starting point and an all-in-one bible.

    In breathtaking images and insightful essays, Gardens on the Edge explores 18 Australian gardens that are defined by extraordinary horizons. Each of the featured landscapes - from every state and territory, from outback to city - is situated on the edge of a natural frontier: rainforest, desert, bushland, river, mountain range, volcanic crater lake, coast, harbour, saltbush plains. In another sense, Australian gardens and their owners are always 'on the edge' in dealing with the endless vagaries of nature, from drought to dust, fires to flood. In telling the stories of the gardens and their owners, Christine Reid reveals the diversity and character of the Australian continent - and celebrates the imagination and resilience of those who have met the challenges of creating, reconstructing or restoring their 'vision splendid' in an ancient and often-unforgiving land.

    There is much more to interiors filled with plants than meets the eye. Plant arrangements can be seen as an inexpensive way to decorate a home, but in fact, the use of plants in an interior has benefits that are often overlooked. Plants add dimension to interiors and make them feel lively. They strengthen the connection with nature and reflect an appreciation of the botanical world. The presence of plants in a home counteracts the negative effects of city living by improving air quality and regulating temperature and humidity levels. Plants also seem to have positive effects on people's mood and health, reducing stress, promoting creativity and productivity, and increasing levels of wellbeing. The book includes interior design projects for residential spaces, such as apartments, single-family houses, penthouses, and lofts in urban and rural environments. It focuses on modern interiors, where plants are part of the design, giving the home an organic touch.
    From interior courtyards to small balconies and through simple but graceful arrangements of potted plants, the projects offer inspirational ideas to all those who want to fill their homes with plants and add more personality to their decor.
