Book of the Month












Remaking a Garden - The Laskett Transformed by Roy Strong
Sapling.info Bookstore in association with Amazon.co.uk Remaking a Garden - The Laskett Transformed

Roy Strong
(2014)
Hardcover - 176 pages
Frances Lincoln
ISBN: 0711233969




Synopsis by Amazon.co.uk:
The garden at the Laskett in Herefordshire is always described as the largest formal garden laid out in Britain since the war and one of most important and most interesting gardens of the second half of the twentieth century.

Roy Strong and his wife, Julia Trevelyan Oman - two pivotal figures in the arts during the last century - created this uniquely autobiographical and historical garden over thirty years of their marriage. However, by the time Julia died in 2003, the garden at The Laskett had become overgrown and closed in on itself. And so started ‘the great cull'. The Laskett garden is still ‘peopled with the ghosts of nearly everyone we have loved, both living and dead', but trees and hedges have been chopped down, paths widened, vistas opened up. Light has been let in.

This book is a record of the remaking of The Laskett garden, traced in Roy Strong's words and photographer Clive Boursnell's before-and-after pictures and action shots. It is an inspiration, for ‘its message is one for all garden-makers. Do not be afraid to change your garden - indeed to be quite brutal to it - in order to give it new energy and excitement.

Sapling.info Site of the Month (also awarded a Sapling.info Commendation)
The Gardenvisit.com Gardens Guide reviews places of interest to gardeners: properties open to the public, historic estates, botanic collections, websites, hotels, design studios, nurseries and product suppliers. It describes 1000 parks and gardens open to the public in Europe and America, organised by country and (in the UK) by county, with useful information such as opening times, although it is not clear whether this information is up-to-date. This site is impressive in its coverage - there is a section of diagrams covering different historic styles of garden design, with links to examples of gardens influenced by that style; a history of garden design; and an index of garden designers. On the downside, the site's design is dating really badly, and the quality of images is poor. Gardenvisit.com remains a useful site for garden historians and garden visitors alike, but an improved appearance and interface would help do full justice to its impressive content. Awarded a Sapling Commendation. [GAS, 11 Oct 2006].
