Contemporary Australian Garden - Built in mild steel firepit with concrete benchtop by Anthony Wyer, Furniture by Robert Plumb Furniture. Bronte, NSW Australia Anthony Wyer + Associates http://www.anthonywyer.com
This abundant garden is tied together visually through the use of a very simple materials palette – bluestone gravel, terracotta pots, and minimal paving. This both creates a sense of continuity and cohesion, as well as allowing the plants to take centre stage. Photo – Eve Wilson for The Design Files.
Native Violet, Viola hederaceae - I use it everywhere, with its bright green leaves and its sweet mauve/purple flowers raised above the foliage. It will rapidly fill in bare areas of soil between stepping stones.
