Gardens are man’s way of taming nature, and nature’s way to remind him every now and then that that’s just not so. In Luxury Gardens of UK & Ireland, from renowned photography publisher teNeues, you can finally see the most gorgeous gardens tucked away inside the most privileged and hidden locations.
We’ve always loved the rambling English rose garden, a crisp path meandering through a thorny wild, carefully cultivated to be unkempt. This book has some of those, and lots of others, including pastoral expanses that recall the time when the land was all sheep, and crisp angular spaces where all natural elements have been clipped, chiseled, and pruned into submission. It’s an insightful look into the breadth of man’s relationship with nature within his home.
Nowadays the extent of our gardening is taking a thermal mug of coffee to the neighborhood park, but this book makes us long for the time when we can finally have our own estate. An entertaining book with stunning pictures, this is an excellent gift for gardeners, artists, and travel buffs.
