Australian Landscape Designers

Interested in how they are doing landscape work down under in the land of kangaroos, and “Shrimpo on the barbie”?

Well here you go

The Australian Institute of Landscape Designers and Managers is a very interesting and informative website, that is definitely  worth a look.

While you’re there check out the Design Awards page for some nice work and maybe an idea or two! I am reminded of the Woddy Guthrie phrase, I’m going from memory here;

“A good artist borrows his ideas, while a great artist steals his ideas.”

I guess Woody is saying go out and grab something and then make it your own. Anyway . . .

Keep up the good work down there gang. Someday I am going to get down there and actually eat some of those shrimp on that dang barbie, have a cold one or two and take in some of that World famous Australian hospitality.

Here’s a shot from a former winner.

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.
