Antique Collectors Club Dist #ad - This charming book, first published in 1912 as gardens for Small Country Houses by Country Life at a time when both Jekyll and Weaver were writing for the magazine, contains the substance of a legend. Arts and crafts gardens is a practical handbook with invaluable information on garden restoration, insights into craftsmanship and planting relationships, and provides a fascinating classic text on garden design.

Arts and Crafts Gardens #ad - This new edition, which has been re-titled to distinguish it from the original book, is now illustrated with colour photographs and reproductions of contemporary paintings and watercolours which bring new colour and light to a vanished world. In their collaboration on this book, the authors found common ground and reveled in their mutual intuitive approach to artistic and historic gardening ideas.

It embodies the period when the Arts and Crafts Movement had evolved into country house architecture and then found its most delightful expression in the making of gardens. Used book in Good Condition.

The Gardens of Gertrude Jekyll

#ad
Little Brown & Co #ad - Though many of the gardens she worked on were large, she usually preferred to divide them into smaller components. Her genius was to endow gardens with an atmosphere of timeless serenity, valued in her own day but all the more precious in the tumult of the modern world. Over the years, and only a handful of her plans are well known, many of her gardens and original plantings have disappeared, although thousands survive in archives.

For the gardens of gertrude jekyll Richard Bisgrove has selected the best of Miss Jekyll's planting plans, most until now unpublished. He demonstrates that Miss Jekyll's ideas on planting remain fresh and relevant. Gertrude jekyll holds a unique place in the making of English gardens and has exerted immense influence on good garden planting throughout the world.

The Gardens of Gertrude Jekyll #ad - With painstaking original research he has analyzed and reinterpreted them, making them accessible to today's gardeners. Her skill in using plants to soften the hard lines of new gardens and formal architecture, her ability to compose plantings to sustain interest throughout the seasons, her solutions to the problems of shady spots and awkward corners - all these make her designs directly applicable to today's limited plots.

The plans are brought alive by an accomplished watercolorist and are enhanced by full-color photographs of Jekyll gardens and of modern plantings in the Jekyll tradition.
