I was flattered recently to be asked to write a book review for GardenDrum, and excited when this book, ‘ The New Australian Garden – Landscapes for Living ‘ arrived last week in the post. Another one to add to my collection!

However I do take my job of reviewing seriously, so I’m pleased to say I have read ‘ The New Australian Garden – Landscapes for Living ’ and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It offers a fresh and unique perspective in comparison to similar garden books that I have read previously.

Michael Bates is a landscaper and landscape designer who runs a landscape construction and design company in Sydney, Bates Landscape. He has worked with many of Australia’s top landscape architects and landscape designers on some unique and high end projects, as well as being an accomplished landscape designer in his own right. You may have seen him on the last series of Dream Gardens (Series 1, Episode 4 for those that want to take a look), with a garden he designed and constructed on the waterfront in Sydney. As a fellow designer it was an interesting episode to watch, particularly in regards to client/designer relationships.

While some may believe the perfect travel destination consists only of sun, sea and sand, for those with a more adventurous streak, here is a collection of the most surreal and mysterious landscapes on earth. These are places that have intrigued visitors, baffled scientists and captured the imagination of local people for centuries.

This violently pink saline lake can be found on Middle Island in the Recherché Archipelago, off the coast of Western Australia. While only 600 metres long, the startlingly-coloured lake resembles a piece of Pop Art on the otherwise uniformly green island. The cause of its pink hue continues to baffle scientists. Some experts think it is caused by the low nutrient concentrations and different types of bacteria and algae, while others suggest the pink colouration comes from a sea salt and nahcolite deposit reaction.

Resembling the scenery of a video game or sci-fi film, Dallol’s volcanic landscape in the Danakil Depression is a geological phenomenon. Its luminous, otherworldly appearance is a result of acidic hot springs, sulphur, gas geysers and spectacular salt formations. However, a note of caution to those planning a visit to this extraordinary crater: the climate in Dallol registers the hottest temperatures of any inhabited area on earth, with average summer highs of 46C. The colourful lakes are, in many cases, toxic and the sulphurous vapours make it difficult to breathe.

Roots in Antiquity
Artists have been painting the landscape since ancient times. The Greeks and Romans created wall paintings of landscapes and gardenscapes. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the tradition of depicting pure landscapes declined, and the landscape was seen only as a setting for religious and figural scenes. This tradition continued until the 16th century when artists began to view the landscape as a subject in its own right. The artistic shift seems to have corresponded to a growing interest in the natural world sparked by the Renaissance.

Rise of the Landscape in the Netherlands
The term "landscape" actually derives from the Dutch word landschap , which originally meant "region, tract of land" but acquired the artistic connotation, "a picture depicting scenery on land" in the early 1500s (American Heritage Dictionary, 2000). The development of the term in the Netherlands at this time was logical because the Netherlands was one of the first places that landscape had become a popular subject for painting. At this time, the rising Protestant middle class sought secular art for their homes, creating the need for new subjects to meet their tastes; landscapes helped fill this need.

Outside of the Netherlands, the genre, or subject, of landscape painting had yet to gain acceptance with the powerful art academies of Italy and France. The hierarchy of respectable painting subjects placed history painting, which included classical, religious, mythological and allegorical themes, above all other subjects. Portraits, genre (scenes of everyday life), still life, and landscapes were seen as inferior subjects for painting. Even as landscapes became acceptable as subjects in the 17th century, they were still often created merely as settings for biblical, mythological, or historical scenes.

The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) is taking place in Bonn, Germany from 19-20 December, 2017. The Forum, a multi-stakeholder platform on sustainable land use, gathers a wide range of like-minded partners working on the landscape and forest restoration agenda including, among others, the World Bank , UN Environment , CIFOR , World Resources Institute (WRI), the Global Environment Facility , and supported by the German Government .

Speaking at the opening plenary, GEF CEO and Chairperson, Naoko Ishii, reaffirmed the GEF’s continued support for the forests, land and restoration agenda:

"We need to find a way to feed nine billion people without degrading the natural environment anymore. The world belatedly has discovered the power of soil, the power of forests, and the power of nature. I see clearly that the restoration and landscape approach has been gaining momentum", said Naoko Ishii. "The GEF can play a catalytic role for much needed transformational change in food and land use systems. If we break out of man-made institutional silos and create multi-stakeholder platforms at large scale landscapes, we have a higher chance to succeed."
