Synopsis

This beautiful and richly-illustrated book tells you everything you need to know about the latest developments in the world of the English garden.

Join leading garden writer Tim Richardson as he visits twenty-five significant English gardens made or remade over the past decade, in this comprehensive overview of the contemporary English garden scene, probably the most inventive garden culture in the world.

From the cutting-edge naturalistic planting design of the Sheffield School to the scientific imagery of Througham Court, this stunning guide surveys a wide spectrum of garden styles; some are challenging or thought-provoking, while others reflect the sensuously romantic traditionof English planting design, which has also been moving ahead in interesting ways.

The New English Garden presents all that is most interesting about garden-making in England in the twenty-first century, 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.
