Gardens harness, enhance and revere the power of the earth; to enjoy one is to experience the most harmonious collaboration between man and nature. Each space is unique and a product of its individual climate and environment. A garden also reflects the history, culture, and architecture of the society that cultivated it. Gardens is a comprehensive visual exploration of these dynamic and engaging spaces.
With lavish illustrations, Reflections; Gardens celebrates the striking contrast and variety that exists in the world's green spaces, from the futuristic aesthetic of Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, to the meticulously manicured lawns of Het Loo in the Netherlands, to the lush and untamed appeal of Monet's beloved Giverny in France.
Along with the most celebrated gardens in the world, Gardens explores large-scale urban interjections and elaborate conservation projects, giving fresh definition to Francis Bacon's idea that 'gardening is the purest of human pleasures'
