YOUR GUIDE TO CREATING
THE ULTIMATE OUTDOOR SPACE
Whether you’re looking for inspiration for a new
garden design, or on the search for that perfect
outdoor setting in which to sit back and relax,
this edition of Scoop Outdoors & Gardens, is about helping
you create your ultimate outdoor space.
We bring you not only the best outdoor designs locally and nationally, but also a number of inspirational
gardens from around the globe. From South Africa to Texas, the calibre is breathtaking, as you’ll see in our
International Designs roundup (p42).
Back on home soil, we showcase a number of design elements in national gardens that embody the
Australian love of the outdoors (p72). Think open entertaining areas, extended verandahs and decking,
sparkling pools and water features, and furniture that blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living.
There’s no denying now that your garden space is an extension of your home.
We also take a closer look at the different materials, styles, and design elements that come together to
create a garden in Design Directions (p98) – you’ll be surprised at how small changes that can create a bold
impact on your design.
An outdoor space is like a home, where your needs and wants change over time, and that should be an
extension of your personality. Individuality is the key, and we present an abundance of experts to help you
visualise your unique space and cater to your lifestyle. Just leaf through our feature profiles section (p126
onwards) for all the specialist help you could ever want.
So if you’re currently sitting in your old patio area, in need of inspiration for that revamp you’ve been
postponing, or chilling poolside and wondering what new ottoman would work with your decor, you’ll find
everything your need and more in this edition of Outdoors & Gardens.

ON THE COVER
Situated by the water in Sydney’s Sans Souci,
this garden features a pool with a wet edge
that spills over into the bay, and curves that
offer an eye-catching aspect from above.
The cantilevered pavilion features timber
panelling, while plants emphasise the shapes
of the design and add contrasting colours.
