Tea with the Queen

Know your space – Debbie Laporte


Getting out and into nature always seems to clear our head and just make us feel a whole lot better, doesn’t it? Problem is we can’t always get out into the bush whenever we’d like. COVID’s made sure of that! So, it’s important that the space close to you – whether it’s the backyard or kids’ playground – is designed in a way that’s enjoyable.

Emma McQueen’s guest is Debbie Laporte, owner and director of Orterra, a landscape architecture practice in Brisbane. She knows how good design – combining water, trees and land – entices people to use a particular space. And she has tips for your own backyard.
