9780711232709: The New English Garden

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.

Review:


THE NEW ENGLISH GARDEN

by Tim Richardson Photographs by Andrew Lawson, with Jane Sabire and Rachel Warne

Armscote Manor (Dan Pearson) Mount St John (Tom Stuart-Smith) Packwood House (Mick Evans) Highgrove (The Prince of Wales and others) Trentham (Tom Stuart-Smith, Piet Oudolf) Temple Guiting (Jinny Blom)

FROM THE INTRODUCTION: The "new" English garden? That's a big claim. The sceptical reader may well ask: "How can a well-know garden such as Great Dixter, or Trentham, or Highgrove, be described as "new"? When I started to consider which gardens should be included in this book, I decided that the most useful, and certainly the most interesting, way to proceed would be to concentrate on innovative gardens that have been made or remade during the past decade. They do not have to be gardens that have recently been created from scratch. Gardens of character do not generally emerge overnight: garden-making is a pursuit in which change and regeneration are natural and desirable, where the passage of time has a creative impact on the look and feel of the place. For a truly "new" garden to bed down, for the plantings to mature and the hard materials to weather, can easily take a decade or more - sometimes much more: many landscape gardens are at their best when the trees have matured, perhaps 150 years after they were first laid out. At the same time, it is also possible to make something genuinely new on old soil. A new garden can be born of an old one, retaining part of an older identity while developing a new character. It is the relationship of a child to a parent, a chip off the old block, where the fads and foibles of successive generations can be traced in the visible and invisible fabric of the place. As Sylvia Crowe pointed out more than half a century ago, garden-making is all about process, not product. For time is the essence of garden-making as a creative endeavor: a garden is forever changing, and on every scale of time - through the passage of centuries, years, seasons, days, hours, or even across a single minute. ..

Descrizione libro Frances Lincoln Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New 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. The Full List of Gardens is: Armscote Manor Mount St John Packwood House Scamptson Hall Daylesford House The Lynn Garden, Ascott Great Dixter Througham Court Crockmore House Pettifers Waltham Place Highgrove Living Wall, Athenaeum Hotel Trentham Plaz Mataxu Cottesbrooke Hall Olympic Park Temple Guiting Angel Field Hanham Court Tilbuty Hall Gresgarth Bury Court The Laskett Wildside.
