The gardens of Gertrude Jekyll by Richard Bisgrove( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: The English gardens of Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932) have influenced good garden design throughout the world. While many of Jekyll's gardens and original plantings have disappeared, and only a handful of her plans are well-known, thousands survive in archives. Richard Bisgrove has selected a representative sample from this remarkable collection, and the designs--including plans for Jekyll's three American gardens as well as for many of her English gardens--have been redrawn by an accomplished watercolorist and relabeled to make them more accessible to the nonspecialist. Together they provide an astonishing record of Jekyll's versatility as a garden designer and of the painstaking attention to detail that she applied to every aspect of her art

12 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im vorliegenden Buch stellt eine der außergewöhnlichsten Gartenarchitektinnen der Gegenwart freigiebig die Fülle ihres Repertoires vor. Den ersten Teil des Buches widmet Arabella Lennox-Boyd ihrer persönlichen Gartenphilosophie und den Grundsätzen der Gartengestaltung, wenn sie erklärt, wie wichtig es ist, nicht nur die umliegende Landschaft, sondern auch Atmosphäre und individuelle Eigenschaften der Besitzer zu erfassen oder wie ein stimmiges Planungskonzept entsteht, das uns wie von selbst durch einen Garten leitet. Die Autorin erläutert, wie Mauern, Hecken und Pergolen äußere und innere Begrenzungen schaffen, Bäume, Terrassen und Wasserstücke zur Akzentuierung und als Anziehungspunkte, Wege und Treppen zur Strukturgebung dienen. Darüber hinaus erklärt die exzellente Pflanzenkennerin, unter welchen Gesichtspunkten Pflanzen ausgewählt werden, um das Gerüst der Gestaltung auszufüllen. Eine Vielzahl an Gestaltungsideen und -vorschlägen erwartet den Leser auf jeder Seite, von Pflasterarbeiten angefangen bis zur Anlage einer dauerhaften Bepflanzung, festgehalten in Andrew Lawsons stimmungsvollen Bildern und Lennox-Boyds Plänen. Der zweite Teil des Buches befasst sich ausführlich mit der breiten Palette unterschiedlichster Gartenformen, die von schwungvoll gestalteten?Romantischen Gärten? bis zu skizzenhaften Andeutungen minimalistischer Dachgärten reicht. Viele Projekte der Autorin sind Privatgärten und werden in diesem Buch erstmals vorgestellt. Jeder Garten steckt dabei voller Ideen und liefert gleichermaßen wertvolle Anregungen für Gartenneulinge wie für den erfahrenen Gärtner

The basis of creating harmonizing and contrasting schemes is explained and illustrated with dramatic examples. All the major schemes are supported by keyline drawings giving full planting details. In addition, illustrated plant directories, arranged by colour and flowering season, provide cultivation details for over 850 plants, enabling you to assemble the right plants for your chosen scheme and to carry that scheme through the year

Shakespeare's gardens by Jackie Bennett( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare's Gardens is a highly illustrated, informative book about the gardens that William Shakespeare knew as a boy and tended as a man, published to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death in April 2016. This anniversary will be the focus of literary celebration of the man's life and work throughout the English speaking world and beyond. The book will focus on the gardens that Shakespeare knew, including the five gardens in Stratford upon Avon in which he gardened and explored. From his birthplace in Henley Street, to his childhood playground at Mary Arden's Farm, to his courting days at Anne Hathaway's Cottage and his final home at New Place--where he created a garden to reflect his fame and wealth. Cared for by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, these gardens are continually evolving to reflect our ongoing knowledge of his life. The book will also explore the plants that Shakespeare knew and wrote about in 17th century England: their use in his work and the meanings that his audiences would have picked up on--including mulberries, roses, daffodils, pansies, herbs and a host of other flowers. More than four centuries after the playwright lived, whenever we think of thyme, violets or roses, we more often than not still remember a quote from the 39 plays and 154 sonnets written by him
