If you’ve already got a finished, fully functional backyard but can’t escape the feeling that something is missing, perhaps you should look into incorporating some garden art. This is your chance to personalise your backyard and really make it stand out from the crowd. The Makers this issue showcases eight gardens that feature a range of amazing sculptures.
Our designer gardens include an incredible country estate in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. This elegant, rustic-themed property features an English planting scheme, extensive use of natural materials, impressive kitchen garden, expansive lawns and dam and a woodland dell.
Our backyard revolutionaries this edition feature Mickey Robertson and her amazing garden in Camden, NSW. The original property was unkempt, with a collection of sad-looking farmhouses. It took 25 years, lots of ideas and hard work to create this now thriving organic kitchen garden at Glenmore House.
