Description of this Book

Inspired by Andy's backyard segments on TVNZ1's Seven Sharp this book is perfect for anyone dreaming of making changes at their own place. It features a wide range of backyards from Kiwi heroes like Kieran Read, Richie and Gemma McCaw, Sir Graham Henry, Wayne Smith, Wyatt Crockett, Sir Richard Hadlee, Izzy Dagg, George and Kayla Whitelock, Jason Gunn, Dan Carter's folks, Al Brown, Matt Watson and Jason Kerrison. Each has a different theme, for instance the inner city sanctuary, native haven, Kiwi kid's playground, traditional garden or the entertainer's utopia so there's something for everyone. In addition there are generic plans drawn up by landscape architects Kamo Marsh that give practical ideas for creating your ideal backyard, as well as planting lists for each different theme.

Author's Bio

Andy Ellis studied landscape architecture at Lincoln University on a Rugby Scholarship. He got three years through the four-year degree when professional rugby took over and he began playing for Canterbury from 2005 and the Crusaders from 2006. In total he played 154 games for the Crusaders, winning two Super Rugby titles. He was selected for the All Blacks in 2006 and played 28 tests, including the 2011 final in which New Zealand won the Rugby World Cup. While playing rugby in 2009, Andy worked with his friend and landscape architect Danny Kamo on an entry for the Ellerslie Flower Show. In their second year they won a supreme award and were invited to compete in the Singapore Garden Festival, one of the big three in the world. With the help of Weta Workshop and Sir Richard Taylor they came up with a design that saw them become the first New Zealanders to win a gold at this prestigious show. Andy's degree has been put on hold while he plays rugby overseas in Japan but he loves to stay involved with landscaping. He has appeared in a series of segments on TVNZ1's Seven Sharp where he visited Kiwi celebrities and learned about their passion for their backyards, something he feels many Kiwis have in common.
