Tim Richardson beschäftigt sich intensiv mit modernen, konzeptuellen Gärten. Alle in diesem Band vorgestellten sind in den letzten 10 Jahren (um)gebaut worden. Ausser ausführlichen Beschreibungen mit schönen Bildern gibt es auch eine spannende Einführung, die die Gartenentwicklungen des letzten Jahrhunderts aus der sich eines Insel-Europäers zusammenfasst. Sehr viele Einflüsse kamen z.B. aus Deutschland und dem uralten Gartenkulturland Holland. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0711232709, Hardcover)

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.
