House of Folding Planes

I've always had a thing for cacti. A pot or two about the house has been more than satisfactory ... until now. Now I want  a garden just like this by Phoenix, Arizona based landscape architects Colwell Shelor. It may necessitate a move to an arid climate but I can't see that being a problem.

Urban garden

Inner city living often means that a garden has to be multifunctional. Parking space, entertaining area, a place to relax, a little greenery to counteract the harsh urban landscape. A multifunctional oasis. If you can through in a small pool and a statement orange wall well things just got turned up a notch. Loving this St Kilda, Melbourne courtyard by Eckersley Garden Architecture.

Summertime in the backyard

Please forgive me but I just can't get enough backyard inspiration at the moment. Summer time in Australia is all about opening the inside to the out, living, eating, drinking and even showering outside. OK, OK the showering is more about washing the salt and sand off after a trip to the beach. I love the small but simply stylish backyard at this Manly, Sydney home designed by Harrison’s Landscaping. I see books and drinks and friends and catching the breeze. I see summer in the backyard.

Pipe dream

This award-winning show garden by Melbourne-based Alison Douglas Design is just the inspiration I need for that awkward spot at the end of my garden. I just have to explain to my husband why I need to buy a large concrete culvert pipe.

PIPE DREAM is a hidden oasis in our busy city designed as an antidote to our epidemic of being time poor. The meditation moon gate/day bed, reflective water feature and fire pit are all created from concrete pipes. Concrete was chosen as a feature material to reference the ‘concrete jungle’ we inhabit ... Pipe Dream is a place to stop, meditate, reflect and breathe. As this is easier said than done one might call it a ‘Pipe Dream’.
