This book, first published in 1912 by "Country Life", contains the substance of a legend, when the Arts and Crafts Movement had evolved into country house architecture and then found expression in the making of gardens. Both Gertrude Jekyll and Lawrence Weaver were working on "Country Life" in its early days under its founder and owner, Edward Hudson. Lawrence Weaver was an architect, the Architectural Editor of "Country Life", with an immense eye for detail and the intricacies of fine craftmanship. Gertrude Jekyll was art school trained, and into her second life as a gardener. In collaborating to write this book, the two authors found an area of common ground and revelled in their mutual intuitive, artistic and historic gardening ideas. For its craftmanship and planting relationships, as well as in its use as a practical handbook, useful for the restoration of gardens, readers of this book should find it no less pertinent to the present than when it was first published.

HASH(0x940b0ccc) von 5 Sternen Informative and useful...beautiful update of the classic.... 29. Juni 2005
Von Dianne Foster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
First published in 1912 by `Country Life' as GARDENS FOR SMALL COUNTRY HOUSES, ARTS AND CRAFTS GARDENS by Gertrude Jekyll and Lawrence Weaver was republished years later as part of the Antique Collectors Club LTD, and now as a "revised edition with additional colo[u]r illustrations" by the Garden Art Press. More art book than instructive garden guide, the modern publication includes many black and white illustrations as well as layout drawings of the houses and grounds discussed, as well as detailed examples of other features, appearing in the earlier volume, along with beautiful color photos and illustrations depicting specific design elements as they appear today. Thus the reader can determine what the landscaper saw and planned, and how well her design worked then and years later. Jekyll's foresight and intuitive understanding of the "art" of garden design (which many of us learn about the hard way) as illustrated in this book, provides the modern reader with an idea of why Jekyll is still revered among garden designers.

The book title, `Gardens for Small County Houses', may appear ludicrous to the contemporary reader, as it provides an overview of selected examples of various gardens the authors developed in Surrey, Berkshire, and Guildford, which by today's standards are quite large. Chapters cover houses and gardens in their entirety, and at least one covers the "Treatment of Small Sites" such as Cheyne Walk in Chelsea, a gorgeous town house site. Other chapters cover selected design elements, such as "balustrades and walls", "steps and stairways" and retaining walls. Most of these elements are used by modern landscape designers in large public settings and on a few "estates", but many cannot be adapted to the small scale urban garden. Many features of these "country" gardens were lifted from Roman villas and most of us don't own villas, however, some of the elements, such as pergolas, arbors, and trellises can and probably should be adapted to a modern urban garden.

Because you probably wouldn't want to attempt to duplicate these designs on an average modern lot, the value of this book other than as a beautiful art book lies in its ability to inform. You will want to study it before you visit one of the notable "estates" where Jekyll worked in England.

HASH(0x940e3300) von 5 Sternen Salivating over stairs... 19. März 2008
Von Chris Heiler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I absolutely love this book. I nearly salivated when I saw the numerous drawings and photos of garden structures and architecture- So I'm a "Structure" guy, not a "plant" guy. My wife literraly told me to stop bothering her because I kept showing her pictures of stairs, walls and pergolas. This really is a tremendous resource. I refer to this book whenever I need a bit of design inspiration. I found the sketches, along with photos, to be tremendously helpful.

HASH(0x93ec7f0c) von 5 Sternen Classic Appeal 20. August 2006
Von Serena Meinhold - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a great point of reference for anyone looking for formal garden inspiration. It is wonderful to see the way architecture and garden design can really complement one another so harmoniously. In these cases, neither would be nearly as interesting without the other.

G. Jekyll's garden plans are very interesting to look at. They are giving me many thoughts on good plant combinations & spacing. Also, while her designs are filled with a lot of material, she seems to have a keen eye for leaving space as well.

The attention to detail is wonderful and one can really see the benefit of meticulous planning. Rather than the plant and see what happens approach, it is actually possible to make very deliberate & specific choices.

Now I just want to know who the poor people are who have to do the weeding, watering and pruning in these giant gardens - eeeks!

HASH(0x940c95ac) von 5 Sternen A Must Have For The Complete Garden Library 9. August 2005
Von William G. Troiano - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Gertrude Jekyll's expertise is evident in this finely written and illustrated book. It covers the Arts and Crafts era of fine gardening in extensive detail. She illustrates the garden relationship to the residence and outbuildings and what plants to use to create different effects.
