Phillip Johnson's Sustainable Landscapes
Connecting with nature through sustainable landscape design
Illustrated with lavish photography, garden plans and practical water-flow diagrams for each garden featured, Connected tells the stories behind the commissioning, design and execution of 19 gardens designed by Phillip (with insights from their owners). The showcased gardens range from small suburban to large rural spaces, and include the author's own home garden 'laboratory'. Phillip's account of the design and construction of his award-winning garden at Chelsea is also featured.
Landscape architecture is part of Phillip Johnson's DNA: he designed his first garden at the age of five. He completed his Applied Science degree in Horticulture at the University of Melbourne and immediately started his own landscape and design business. He now leads one of the most awarded landscape design firms in the industry. Phillip has been 'recreating habitat' for more than 19 years, developing more than 500 residential and commercial gardens.
