Take your garden to the next level with practical and inspirational advice from our four outstanding experts at the 2020 Garden Design Series: Part II with Kate Cullity

Kate is a founding director of TCL and is a nationally and internationally recognised and awarded landscape architect and environmental artist, with particular skills in the design of public and private gardens and the integration of public art with landscape and urban design. Her topic will examine the role design expressions such as patterning, repetition and the power of multiples play in TCL’s projects; how these ordering systems have an ability to connect people to intrinsic structures found in natural systems and in so doing encourage a nexus between beauty, care and environmental, social and cultural sustainability. 

Projects discussed will include the recently completed Cultivated by Fire - a display garden for the Gardens of the World IGA in the outskirts of Berlin which explores how Australian Aborigines manage the land by the use of periodic fires, The Australian Garden– a botanic garden dedicated to the display of Australian plants and the abstraction of the Australian environment, and The National Arboretum in Canberra, an arboretum of ‘100 Forests’ of the world’s endangered tree species. A number of TCL’s private gardens will also be shown and discussed.

Kate has been a member of the core design team in many of TCL’s award-winning projects including the Redevelopment of North Terrace and Victoria Square in Adelaide and The Australian Garden in Victoria, which won the 2013 WAF, ‘Landscape of the Year’ Award.  She was an inaugural recipient of the AILA National Edna Walling Award for Residential Design in 2006 and has won this award several times since then. 

Due to the popularity of the Garden Design Series, now in its sixth year, you need to book early to secure your spot. Ticket includes drinks and canapés on arrival.
