A Living Palette: embracing spontaneity in landscape design

“Our patches of dirt are our garden labs. The lessons to be learnt through the interaction and direct observation of even a small plot are almost endless. When living in an inner city suburb, we planted a few indigenous grasses into the tiny front garden, amongst a rose and a rosemary bush. That Summer, the sound of insects was like no other year, in the evenings it transported you to a different place – the point is, just three different plants can bring so much to everyday life.”

Landscape architect Sarah Hicks works with a living palette of plants and flowers. Through her Melbourne studio, Bush Projects, Sarah and co-founder, Bonnie Charles, investigate the way people experience, occupy and interact with landscape. Frequently working closely with architects, Sarah will discuss her work for both the public and the private realm and pass on some tips to use in your own garden this autumn.
