Hey There! I’m Rochelle Greayer. I’m a garden designer on TV and IRL. I’m also an author and entrepreneur who thinks she can save the world by teaching everyone a little something about landscape design.






Daily Garden: Lady Sarah’s English Austrailan Outback

Catherine Martin is a set designer but the garden that she created for the movie Australia is worth a study to steal style ideas.

Australia garden set designed by catherine martin movie lady sarah

Catherine has designed many sets (academy and tony award winning), but this is the first full scale house and garden.  The design was meant to reflect what a transplanted English Lady might create when plopped down in the middle of the Australian outback. (as is the the story for the epic movie Australia, in which this garden is featured)  Even though much of it isn’t real (the Baob tree is made of plaster of paris) – the challenges that were faced were real (think shrub eating kangaroos to replace munching deer).   The garden is a beautiful set don’t you think?
