It offers useful information and guidance on designing and creating beautiful country gardens with reference to real examples, complete with descriptions, photographs, ground plans, and diagrams. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in traditional English country gardening, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Millmead, Bramley, Surrey," "Two Gardens in Forest Clearings," "A Garden in Berkshire," "Westbrook, Godalming," "A Garden in West Surrey," "Highmount, Guildford," "The Treatment of Small Sites," "On Hillside Garden," "Steps and Stairways," "Balustrades and Walls," "Climbing and Other Plants," etc. Gertrude Jekyll (1843 - 1932) was a British garden designer, horticulturist, photographer, craftswoman, artist, and writer. She is responsible for designing and creating over 400 gardens in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States, as well as writing more than 1,000 articles for related magazines. She is credited with having had a significant influence on gardening by both British and American enthusiasts. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening." --

Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932), the distinguished and influential garden designer of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, originally trained as an artist but later turned her hand to craftwork, gardening, and plant collecting and breeding. During her career she collaborated with distinguished architects such as Sir Edwin Lutyens and reached a popular audience through the publication of articles in newspapers and magazines such as William Robinson's The Garden. Jekyll's second book, first published in 1890, is a collection of her advice and reflections on a range of topics, particularly those relating to her own home, Munstead Wood. It contains chapters on particular plants, and gives guidance on projects such as building rock gardens, as well as more idiosyncratic pieces on her cats, or the importance of one's own tools. Jekyll's informal tone and the range of topics discussed make this a fascinating work of social and gardening history

Arts & crafts gardens : gardens for small country houses by Gertrude Jekyll( Book )

19 editions published between 1912 and 2005 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This charming book, first published in 1912 by Country Life, typifies the Arts and Crafts Movement in its portrayal of country house architecture and the making of their gardens. Gertrude Jekyll and Lawrence Weaver came together at Country Life magazine. Gertrude Jekyll was art school trained, practical and into her second life as a gardener. She was Country Life's authority on the 'order and beauty of the woodland and garden.' Lawrence Weaver was a professional architect and Architectural Editor, with an immense eye for detail and the intricacies of fine craftsmanship. There is no doubt that in collaborating to write this book, the two authors complemented each other in an area of common ground where they revelled in their mutual intuitive, artistic and historic gardening ideas. For its craftsmanship and planting relationships, as well as in its use as a practical handbook, invaluable for the restoration of gardens, readers of this book will find it no less pertinent to the present than when it was first published. Many of Gertrude Jekyll's works are available from the Antique Collectors' Club
