Cotswold Gardens

Description from Amazon

Cotswold Gardens : Paperback
David Hicks (Author) , Andrew Lawson (Author, Photographer)

The Cotswolds, stretching from the west of Oxford to the Welsh borders, from Bath in the south to Worcestershire in the north, contain some of the most celebrated gardens in the world: Blenheim, Buscot, Hidcote, Rousham, Sezincote and Sudeley Castle. David Hicks looks at these and many others and shares his uniquedesign awareness and brings a fresh approach to these spectacular gardens.

The current crop of gardening books is either chock-full of horticultural advice or overflowing with ambitious landscaping plans. Renowned designer Hicks forgoes the opportunity to provide counsel, acting instead as a tour guide to England’s Cotswolds, an area distinguished by stunning gardens and historically preserved countryside. Primarily a feast for the eyes, this lavishly illustrated tome first introduces the garden belonging to Hicks and his wife, Pamela Mountbatten. Traveling about the region, he goes on to describe the architecture of the manor houses visited, along with garden designs, the fanciful forms of detached structures, and selected plantings. Accompanying photographs perfectly frame both the sublime vista and the intimate flower border. A selection that will please Anglophiles and gardeners alike. Alice Joyce –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

 

David Hicks was one of the great designers of the twentieth century. For decades he influenced design and decoration across the world.
