Landscape design has its highest profile ever right now. New Zealand garden design is rapidly becoming recognised internationally as excitingly innovative and creative, from sharp city minimalism to sweeping coastal and country estates. Following a brief introduction outlining the history of garden design in New Zealand, the author and photographer celebrate the work of 20 of our most accomplished garden designers. The range of personalities is truly national, from Ted Smyth, Rod Barnett, Trish Waugh, Gudrun Fischer to Rob Watson, Chris Groom and Ben McMaster.
