Overview

This charming book, first published in 1912 as Gardens for Small Country Houses by Country Life at a time when both Jekyll and Weaver were writing for the magazine, contains the substance of a legend. It embodies the period when the Arts and Crafts Movement had evolved into country house architecture and then found its most delightful expression in the making of gardens. This new edition, which has been re-titled to distinguish it from the original book, is now illustrated with colour photographs and reproductions of contemporary paintings and watercolours which bring new colour and light to a vanished world. In their collaboration on this book, the authors found common ground and reveled in their mutual intuitive approach to artistic and historic gardening ideas. Arts and Crafts Gardens is a practical handbook with invaluable information on garden restoration, insights into craftsmanship and planting relationships, and provides a fascinating classic text on garden design.
