Australian Landscape Conference

Sam is one of two Australian presenters at the 2018 ALC

March 23, 2018 - March 27, 2018

Presentation: Naturalism in Australian Landscape Design: hands on and soft edges.

Drawing on the legacy of Gordon Ford and twenty years of my own experience as a designer and builder of natural Australian gardens, I cover the philosophy and process that underpin our style of work. Various examples are provided including projects ranging from acreages in western Victoria, coastal gardens on the Mornington Peninsula, suburban Melbourne and our own property at Wattle Glen.

Workshop: “You Can’t Draw This” Design/Construct in Landscape Naturalism

In addition I will be running two workshops that explore the integrated and interactive processes of design and construction underpinning our practice. The discipline of using natural materials and carefully honed techniques, such as rock placement learned from my time with Ford, create a sense of understated ‘nature’ and of being in place. In our work drawn plans are all but redundant in the creation of our landscape projects.
