Soulscape: Connecting Gardens to Landscape

AUTHOR: Peter Shaw

Featuring gardens of the Great Ocean Road

Soulscape- Connecting Gardens to Landscape takes readers on a journey through ten gardens located along
the world-famous Great Ocean Road. It illustrates the challenges and outcomes of creating a garden by the sea
or in the wilderness, and how each garden fits within its natural environment.

Peter Shaw shares 'how to' information, coming from his own experience of over 25 years in designing, building
and maintaining coastal gardens, and his commitment to incorporating native and indigenous plants to enhance
the wider landscape that they inhabit.

Collectively, the gardens in this book serve as a primer for homeowners, gardening enthusiasts, or anyone with
a deep love for nature. It is also a book about landscape values. It is the story of Peter and Simone Shaw and the gardens they create in their business, Ocean Road Landscaping, their home garden, Sunnymeade and how you can take inspiration to work with the landscape in creating your garden. The book includes a detailed, visual glossary of plants and trees.
