'The Gardens of Arne Maynard' is the first book devoted to the work of one of today's most celebrated garden designers. Arne Maynard is known for his award-winning gardens in 2000 and 2012 at the Royal Horticultural Society's Chelsea Flower Show, and for his elegant and sympathetic gardens for private houses worldwide. Central to his work is his ability to draw out the essence of a place a talent that lends his gardens a particular sense of harmony and belonging. A passionate gardener himself, Maynard is in the process of transforming the garden around his house, Allt-y-bela, in rural Wales. This garden is featured in the book, offering insights into the work in progress and Maynard's design methods. Also included is Maynard's very first garden of his own, at Guanock House in Lincolnshire, where he spent 10 years creating from a flat field a formal layout, with a kitchen garden, knot garden and herbaceous borders. A total of 12 gardens have been specially photographed, and each is described through the seasons in personal text by Maynard, including details of the brief and the plant selection. 'The Gardens of Arne Maynard' is completed by illustrated features on various topics close to the designer's heart, such as growing and using roses, planting borders, creating productive kitchen gardens, incorporating sculpture in the garden, and training trees and shrubs.
