The  New English Garden, Hardback Book


In The New English Garden the leading garden writer Tim Richardson, author of The Arcadian Friends, discusses twenty-five significant English gardens made or remade over the past decade.

Together these represent a coherent overview of what remains probably the most inventive garden culture in the world. With the benefit of an international perspective, the author surveys a wide spectrum of gardens in styles ranging from the cutting-edge naturalistic planting design of the Sheffield School to the scientific imagery of Througham Court.

While many of these gardens are challenging or thought-provoking, other reflect the sensuously romantic tradition of English planting design, which has also been moving ahead in interesting ways. Through Tim Richardson' s incisive writing, The New English Garden presents all that is most interesting about garden-making in England in the twenty-first century and is beautifully illustrated by Andrew Lawson' s photography of some of England' s most famous gardens, from Prince Charles' s garden at Highgrove, Christopher Llyod' s garden at Great Dixter and Arabella Lennox-Boyd' s garden at Gresgarth right up to the Olympic Park in 2012.
