Gardens enhance our lives, add value to our properties and provide food and habitat for native fauna. In recent times our gardens have been under threat - climate change has affected much of our continent, bringing drier conditions and the need for severe water restrictions. But the scarcity of water doesn't mean we have to forgo gardening altogether - simply that the style of our gardens has to change.

Australian Gardens for a Changing Climate guides today's gardener through these new challenges, including appropriate plant selection, soil improvement, the value of mulch and groundcovers, creating beneficial microclimates, and the methods of capturing and utilising water. In addition it features twenty-five inspiring dry-climate gardens from around the country - everything from stylish city courtyards and windswept seaside gardens, to groves of hardy natives, living tapestries of succulents, and country gardens that merge with the landscape.

Beautifully photographed by Simon Griffiths, this book proves that gardening with a limited amount of water is not only possible - it can produce beautiful, vibrant gardens.
