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’.

City garden inspiration

Spring has sprung right into summer in my part of the world. It's going to be a perfect weekend to get serious in my garden. I need a little inspiration for the patio just outside my kitchen and I think I've found just what I need. Love this courtyard garden and patio in Sydney's Woolloomooloo by landscape architects and designers Outdoor Establishments. Alfresco dining, chilling and a great retro and reuse vibe. Don't think I'll need the fire pit and throw just right now but they will be perfect when the summer blast has gone. Love the big square tubs full of Sansevieria out the front too.

Gardening in the round

A contemporary garden oasis. A small sanctuary for lush outdoor living by landscape architect and horticulturist Ben Scott.


Great outdoors

Australians love the great outdoors. We'll do anything to get out of the house. We love the beach. We love the bush. We love our local park. But most of all we love our own back yards. Outside our homes is just as important as inside. It's not hard to understand considering our wonderful weather. If only we all had such fabulous gardens like these two designed by Melbourne-based landscape architect and horticulturist Ben Scott. "Elegant and sophisticated gardens that are created to be lived in and enjoyed."


Brighton Bunker

This is what Australians would call the perfect inner city backyard. May not be big but it's packed full of family fun and guaranteed to bring out the green eyed monster in your friends. Outdoor kitchen, fireplace, AV hub to watch the cricket and portable lounge. Spa, lap pool and a plywood clad bunker with lounges, planter and recessed bar fridge for the wine and beer. There's a powder room hiding round the back and even room for the trampoline. Bring on summer! By Melbourne-based Dan Gayfer Design.
