Welcome to the new-look Backyard, the magazine for those who don’t just dream of an amazing garden, they want to get out there and make it happen. If the backyard is where you gather with family and friends; if you want to do more in your backyard, be that build a garden bed or lay some paving; and if you want to get your kids involved too, Backyard is what you need.
Backyard covers a wide range of topics for the consumer who is doing a complete makeover. Including but not limited to Planning a Garden, Makeover Ideas, Design Advice, Water Wise Gardening, Outdoor Lighting, Pool Design, Outdoor Furniture, Garden Art, Shade Solutions and Paving Options.
In a world of mass production and ultra-consumerism, it’s nice to see the upcycling trend gaining momentum. The Makers showcases nine gardens that feature items using repurposed and recycled materials.
Our designer gardens include a whimsical creation in the picturesque town of Saint-Briac-Sur-Mer, on the north Emerald Coast of France. Here, designer Christian Préaud has created unity between the garden, the ocean, the sky and the wind, at the same time arranging hide-outs that provide protection from those elements. Back is Australia, we visit a modern bush-style garden that makes the most of the space available.
Our backyard revolutionaries this edition feature Chloe Thomson and her colourful acre, where she practices biodynamic and permaculture principles. Here, a mix of indigenous and exotic plants attracts native wildlife.
