The last twenty years have seen a lucky confluence of money and talent lavished on gardening, and the results are surprising, enchanting, and sometimes controversial. The range of possibilities suggested by these thirty-five gardens is extraordinary: from Jacques Wirtz's undulating beech hedges that recede mysteriously into the mist to Penelope Hobhouse's latest interpretation of the traditional English garden, to Martha Schwartz's Texas creation of red, yellow and pink painted garden rooms. These hidden masterworks of modern gardening are celebrated in words and stunning photographs in this beautiful book. Every page is an invitation to explore landscapes that have never before been seen by the public - and may never be seen again. British garden designers included are Christopher Lloyd, Monty Don, Sarah Raven and Dan Pearson.
