About this book

Australian landscape designer Phillip Johnson became an international household name after winning Best in Show at the Royal Horticultural Society's Chelsea Flower and Garden Show in 2013 – the equivalent of winning a gold medal at the Olympics. Connected: The Sustainable Landscapes of Phillip Johnson explores Phillip's philosophy of connecting with nature in a sustainable way. Connected focuses on his key passions including: integrated sustainable water management and the creation of natural, chemical-free pools; recreation of thriving habitats for indigenous plants and animals; and the thoughtful connection of the landscape to the home.

Illustrated with lavish photography and beautiful watercolour plans, Connected tells the stories behind the commissioning, design and execution of 19 gardens designed by Phillip (with insights from their owners), ranging from small suburban to large rural spaces, and includes his own home garden 'laboratory'. His account of the design and construction of his award-winning garden at Chelsea is also featured.
