Garden Life is a gardening book with soul, in which Richard Unsworth, leading landscape designer and co-owner of renowned outdoor store, Garden Life, shares his boundless enthusiasm for all things green.
This book showcases to-die-for gardens Richard has designed - from the grounds of a harbourside mansion to inner-city courtyard, from coastal retreat to suburban backyard - each one displaying his unique flair and flawless vision. He gives expert tips on incorporating features from his gardens into your own, and detailed advice on plant selection, including growing your own fruit and vegies. Equally passionate about the power of gardening to help us connect with one another, Richard also shares the garden journeys of the people he has met along the way.
A celebration of nature and her gifts, and of the joys and challenges of creating a beautiful garden, Garden Life will inspire and empower you to engage with your own outdoor space.
'Garden Life is a brilliant celebration of Richard Unsworth's passion for all gardens great and small. From formal to relaxed and traditional to exotic, he creates outdoor spaces that are intuitive, individual and totally right for today.' Neal Whitaker, Editor-in-chief, Belle
