From pint-sized gardens to rambling grounds, Secret Gardens is a visual feast of contemporary residential landscaping, offering a rich resource of inspiration to readers, regardless of the size of their own patch of potential paradise. This book tells a story in pictures, with luscious photography of 24 of Secret Gardens’ favourite projects. Each garden is accompanied by descriptions in which Secret Gardens director Matthew Cantwell tells the story of each project, explains how their dramatic transformation was achieved and reveals a few tricks of the trade in the process. The gardens are grouped into three sections, based on the size of each project: Compact, Room to Move, and Free Reign.
