The enormously successful, full-colour landscape design book from Jamie Durie (host of top-rating television shows Backyard Blitz and The Block), now in paperback.
A stunning collection of unique gardens, Patio is 200 pages of inspiration and a hint of DIY, with a very personal touch from Jamie Durie. Jamie is currently hosting Top Design on Channel 9 and continues to go from strength to strength in the arena of garden design.
Durie's pick of gardens spans from magnificent landscapes on a grand scale to inner-city courtyards and balconies. This sourcebook of ideas is illustrated with over 180 gorgeous colour photographs as well as plans and sketches. Durie walks the reader through each garden, with a discussion of its inspiration and all its elements - water, plants, lighting and much more. He also provides design and horticultural tips to help you create what you see on the page in your own backyard, and gives an intimate insight into his personal favourites and obsessions.
Jamie Durie is best known as the host of Backyard Blitz and The Block, both top-rating televisions shows. He has an associate diploma in landscape design and has run his own landscape design business, Patio, since 1999. Durie's career began rather differently - he was a dancer, model and gymnast who has also performed as an acrobat and trapeze artist and trained with the Cirque du Soleil. His previous books - Patio (hardcover), The Outdoor Room and The Source Book - have all been bestsellers.
