Jamie Durie
Allen & Unwin

PatioJAMIE Durie is one of Australia's most popular landscape designers - thanks to his high profile job as a presenter on Backyard Blitz (which also screens on Prime in New Zealand). A former hunky Manpower stripper, he also runs his own design company, Patio, which has a reputation for creating stylish, innovative urban landscapes.

Jamie made his design debut on this side of the Tasman at last year's Ellerslie Flower Show, and he's coming back this year as well.

This glossy coffee table book explains his design philosophy and is beautifully presented, with clever ideas aplenty. Patio is informative and entertaining, with flawless photography and useful hints for gardeners.

If you like modern landscape design, you'll love this book.
