    Observe nature, be inspired by it and start experimenting. These are the tenets upon which Loose Leaf was created by botanical designers Wona Bae and Charlie Lawler. In their stunning first book, Loose Leaf, they show us the many ways we can get creative with nature. It's filled with ways to bring the beauty of nature into our homes and our lives.

    Each chapter is dedicated to design with different natural materials such as cut flowers and foliage, sculptural medium and living plants. 10 projects explore the full range of Wona and Charlie's unique sculptures and botanical installations. In each project they show us practical ways to get creative with nature, including how to make items such as seasonal wreaths, hanging gardens, organic sculptures as well as the secrets behind their signature Monstera chandeliers.

    Loose Leaf harnesses the belief that by bringing the outside in through design with natural material such as plants and flowers, you can realise the importance of nature and learn its nobility. It showcases earthy and inventive flower and foliage arrangements for your home with basic information on the types of vegetation that work together harmoniously. From your own backyard to urban roadsides and far-flung coastlines, Loose Leaf's incredible botanical art will kick-start your own ideas and creativity.

    A haven. A work of art. A legacy.

Now, this tribute to the much-loved designer takes you through every room and garden, with stunning photography by Earl Carter and Simon Griffiths. A beautiful memento of an extraordinary person.

Rich with anecdotes about what has worked best over the years, and with a special focus on plants for our changing climate, this collection showcases Paul's A-list plants with photography from the best in the business, Simon Griffiths.

    Whether for an inner-city courtyard or a rambling rural estate, this book contains the practical advice readers need to give their own patch of green the Paul Bangay look.

    Respected landscape designer Myles Baldwin believes that for the success of any period garden design, consideration of both architecture and garden to achieve an integrated whole is vital. In Period Gardens, he discusses his approach by drawing on examples of garden 'case studies' from the UK, Europe and Australia, identifying the defining features of the major design eras, from the Renaissance and English Arts and Crafts to Victorian, Art Deco and Modernist. Myles looks at the way each landscape relates to the house it surrounds, how he interprets and reworks the relevant garden styles, and how history, architecture and garden design can be melded to create a dynamic, modern landscape. As well as providing a broad-reaching introduction to garden history, Myles gives practical, technical details about garden elements such as paths, fences, swimming pools and plant types, providing a useful guide to anyone wanting to achieve authenticity and liveability in their own period garden.
