Life on the outside

Raxworthy, Julian R. (2008) Life on the outside. Driven, March 200, pp. 16-21.


The archetypal Aussie backyard was once a sprawling mass of lawn, bordered by a rim of exotic plants and punctuated by a hills hoist. But with garden spaces becoming smaller and water to keep them alive becoming increasingly scarce, there are great changes going on in the Australian suburban garden. Julian Raxworthy tracks this change and seeks to discover what the future holds for the urban garden of tomorrow.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
