A collection of 12 stunning gardens set against Aotearoa's spectacular landscape.
Suzanne Turley - one of New Zealand's most sought-after landscape designers - has created many of the country's most desirable private gardens, all set against the spectacular backdrop of the natural environment.
From the pristine Pacific beaches of the North Island to the breathtaking peaks of the Southern Alps, readers are given rare access to these hidden gardens nestled alongside coastal cliffs and surging rivers, woven into bush or etched seamlessly into volcanic hills. The book also offers insights into the design concept and planting plan of each project, as well as the approach to the location and client brief.
Suzanne collaborates with the country's leading architects such as Patterson Associates, Sumich Chaplin and McKinney + Windeatt to create gardens that complement New Zealand's most contemporary architecture, such as Sir Michael Hill's private home in Queenstown and Huka Lodge in Taupo.
Private Gardens of Aotearoa is both an exemplar of cutting-edge landscape design and a travelogue of a country feted for the magnificence of its natural features.
