I plan to lose myself in gardening this weekend. I certainly won’t be able to lose myself in the garden. It needs so much work. I drawing inspiration from this casual garden in Ingleside, Sydney by landscape architect, author and TV host Brendan Moar. Casual but carefully planned. Low on maintenance and high on style. Is it wrong to want a fire pit so much more than a barbecue in the land of the shrimp on the barbie? A little bit cottage, a little bit native, a bit shabby chic. Perfect fit for my old house.
Really beautiful and hardly ugly. I think the key to it being low maintenance is the crushed gravel (or whatever it is), replacing lawn. I hate lawn. I love the palate too, especially the light green of the chairs and bench seating.
Sorta butt ugly, surely?

I designed that garden Superdutch. Go screw yourself
