Feature Garden: Landforms

Following on from our Landform feature from Contributor Michael Bates at the start of the month, I wanted to share with you the footage that documents the process behind bringing this Landform to life.

Inspired by Charles Jencks’ Garden of Cosmic Speculation, the sculptured landform graces the hillside of Michael’s own property located in Tallawong, NSW.

Originally established in 1915, the challenge was to carve out new spaces for gardens that rotate seasonally.

It is a true process garden – we are half way through a 30 year project.

This time lapse clip highlights the overall scale, the detail, the weather conditions endured and precision of workmanship required over time to achieve the desired result.
