Book We're Excited About: Avant Gardeners

Pin it button big

Former Wallpaper magazine landscape editor Tim Richardson has put together a book that showcases the last ten years in avant garden landscape and garden design. We can't wait to flip through it and get inspired by new materials, interesting approaches and just things we maybe hadn't thought about incorporating into a garden.

"This book gives an encyclopedic look at the most advanced thinking in garden design, offering a rich archive for practitioners and enthusiasts alike. In addition to practice profiles, there are thematic sections that explain the underlying principles of these innovators' highly individual approaches to creating outdoor space. The book's introduction explains how a rising generation has rejected the Romantic, naturalistic tradition of Western garden design, favoring instead the influences of Modernism, Postmodernism, Pop Art, and Land Art."

Avant Gardeners available through Amazon for $37.80
