A comprehensive overview of the contemporary English garden scene, by the dream team of Tim Richardson, most perceptive and insightful of contemporary writers on gardens, and renowned garden photographer Andrew Lawson.

The past ten to fifteen years has been an exceptionally rich period in English garden design, and for this book Tim Richardson has selected twenty-five gardens which have gone through an intense phase of creativity and innovation during this time span. The gardens chosen (most of which are open to the public), cover the wide range of styles flourishing in English garden design today and range from the Prince of Wales's garden at Highgrove, through Trentham Gardens (a 'Capability' Brown landscape imaginatively reworked for the twentieth-century by Piet Oudolf, Tom Stuart-Smith and Dominic Cole), Arabella Lennox-Boyd's own garden and 'laboratory for design ideas' at Gresgarth and Dan Pearson's Gardener's Cottage to Christopher Bradley-Hole's Modernist garden at Crockmore House, Kim Wilkie's astonishing Orpheus Landform, and Alasdair Ford's truly original garden of sculptures and poetic inferences at Plaz Metaxu.

"thought-provoking text provides a tightly knit commentary on each garden with plenty of horticultural information and potted biographies of the designer or garden creator ... all 25 gardens in this book deserve their place, each contributing to a visual treat of a book." -- Clare Foster House & Garden 'Tim writes insightfully about the 25 gardens he has chosen for the book' The English Garden "Richardson delivers an excellent overview of the current state of landscape design in England ... This book's spot-on combination of pithy prose and drool-worthy images will make it a sure hit with landscape-design professionals and armchair gardeners alike" Library Journal (US) "readers with only a vest-pocket backyard to till can find ideas worth adapting on a smaller scale" Architectural Digest (US) "This book is a masterpiece, and will come to be seen as the classic statement of English gardens at the start of the 21st century." -- Charles Quest-Ritson Country Life
