Burke, Don

OUT OF PRINT.  This is the story of how Don Burke built his dream, transforming a bush block with virtually no soil – a barren rocky hillside in a dry rainshadow area – into a family retreat with a lush native garden that looks as if it’s been there forever.

The plantings in the garden are a showcase of what can be achieved with native garden design, and how a garden can become a habitat for native wildlife. The garden has evolved over time and Don shares all the highs and lows, offering information not only on native gardens, but also on building driveways, installing ponds, dams and waterfalls, bagging bricks, keeping pets and much more.

Indigenous is a testament to Don Burke’s commitment to educating gardeners everywhere about Australian native plants. It features their endless possibilities and shows in the most practical and inspiring way how to make a garden a beautiful place that Australian families and native wildlife can both enjoy in harmony.
