Be inspired to find the landscaper within

With the warmer months signalling the return to relaxed outdoor living, Boral’s latest free Outdoor Design Guide has inspirational ideas on how to create a private sanctuary.

Featuring a number of outstanding garden makeovers by homeowers around the country, the Outdoor Design Guide provides great solutions to everyday landscaping problems.

Find out how a neglected Sydney garden set on uneven terrain was brought back to life with elevated terraces, steps, walls and paved areas, and how one family on a rural property created a stylish front entrance with some clever landscaping. A Queensland family shows how they created their own outdoor retreat complete with paved pool area, Japanese-style pagoda and lush tropical gardens.

In keeping with the outdoor focus of the guide, learn about Boral’s colour schemes for the external areas of the home, linking bricks, roof tiles and fascias with landscaping elements. A close look at a new Queensland home reveals the benefits of selecting a colour scheme for the entire property before a single brick is laid.

The guide also features expert advice from a landscape architect and a designer on the latest landscaping and outdoor living trends, as well as detailing clever ideas on timber decking and decorative concrete for the outdoors.

Packed full of wonderful ideas and photos, the Boral 2011-2012 Outdoor Design Guide is a must have tool when planning new garden projects. Get a free copy where Boral products are sold, order a copy by contacting Boral on 1300 134 002 or visit
