    There is something special about the English country house garden: from its quiet verdant lawns to its high yew hedges, this is a style much-desired and copied around the world. The English country house is most often conceived as a private, intimate place, a getaway from working life, and here you will see gardens with meandering walks amongst greenery and contemplative pools of water. A sundial, a pergola, a croquet lawn, a herbaceous border of soft planting; here is a space to share secrets, to wander and relax, and above all to enjoy English afternoon tea. But even the most peaceful of gardens also take passion and hard work to create. This new book takes a fresh look at the English country house garden, starting with the owners and the stories behind the making of the gardens. With spectacular photos by Marcus Harpur, the text presents thirty gardens - some grand, some personal, some celebrated, some never-before-photographed - to explore why this garden style has been so very enduring and influential. From the Victorian grandeur of Tyntesfield and Cragside, to the Arts & Crafts simplicity of Rodmarton Manor and Charleston; from Scampston, in the same family since the 17th century, to new gardens by Dan Pearson, Tom Stuart-Smith and the Bannermans; and with favourites such as Hidcote and Great Dixter alongside new discoveries, this book will be a delicious treat for garden-lovers.

    The timeless and unique Japanese garden, with its spiritual and philosophical dimensions, has for centuries appealed to those who wish to create a outdoor space with meaning and a sense of purpose. The aesthetic simplicity of the Japanese garden style is also of particular relevance to today's gardener who is looking for a minimalist, pared-down, low-maintenance garden. Charles Chesshire, a leading garden designer and enthusiast of Japanese gardening, shares his passion and knowledge in this beautifully illustrated book. He explores the fascinating history of the Japanese garden as well as today's modern and western interpretations, and looks at the influence of Shinto and the natural landscape, painting and Chinese art, and of Zen Buddhism on the development of this distinctive garden style. The Japanese garden can be broadly divided into five garden styles, including pond and stream gardens, rock and dry gardens, tea gardens, stroll gardens, and courtyard gardens. The book presents a selection of beautiful images of each style, and accompanies each with a relevant case study, composed of an illustrated garden plan, identifying key features, and an at-a-glance plant list. The main building blocks in the design of a Japanese garden - rocks, sand and gravel, ponds, waterfalls and streams, islands and water edges, and classic Japanese plants - are all fully explored. The purpose-made elements typical of a Japanese garden are also described, with useful advice on construction techniques, including boundaries and enclosures, paths, bridges and stepping stones, lanterns and water basins, shelters and arbours, and pagodas, stupas and buddhas. Finally, a gorgeously illustrated plant directory shows how the right choice of plants can enhance the authenticity of a Japanese-style garden, and includes useful advice of the best seasonal plants to choose as well as helpful horticultural information. With over 260 beautiful specially commissioned colour photographs, including stunning Japanese temple gardens and some of the best Western examples, this book is both a sumptuous inspiration and an invaluable expert reference.
