Description

We may be familiar with the gardens designers have created for their clients, but what happens in their own backyards? this fascinating book takes a peek at the gardens of some of the world's most influential designers, investigating how they differ from their commissioned work, the design process, and how they reflect their owner's design philosophy. Private gardens are often places for experimentation, either with untried plants, novel construction techniques or innovative ways of handling space. Some designers use their gardens as 'gallery spaces' - perfect representations of the heart and soul of their work. Others may be radically different to a designer's commissioned projects. that private gardens are the site for experimentation, suggests that a peek through the garden gate will be a privileged look into the future.
