Description - Period Gardens by Myles Baldwin

Respected landscape designer Myles Baldwin believes that for the success of any period garden design, consideration of both architecture and garden to achieve an integrated whole is vital. In Period Gardens, he discusses his approach by drawing on examples of garden 'case studies' from the UK, Europe and Australia, identifying the defining features of the major design eras, from the Renaissance and English Arts and Crafts to Victorian, Art Deco and Modernist. Myles looks at the way each landscape relates to the house it surrounds, how he interprets and reworks the relevant garden styles, and how history, architecture and garden design can be melded to create a dynamic, modern landscape. As well as providing a broad-reaching introduction to garden history, Myles gives practical, technical details about garden elements such as paths, fences, swimming pools and plant types, providing a useful guide to anyone wanting to achieve authenticity and liveability in their own period garden.
