The Gardens of Arne Maynard
Foreword by Rosie Atkins
Photography by William Collinson
The Gardens of Arne Maynard is the first book devoted to the work
of one of today’s most celebrated garden designers. Arne Maynard
is known for his award-winning gardens in 2000 and 2012 at the
Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show, and for his
elegant and sympathetic gardens for private houses worldwide.
Central to his work is his ability to draw out the essence of a place
– a talent that lends his gardens a particular sense of harmony and
belonging. A passionate gardener himself, Maynard is in the process
of transforming the garden around his house, Allt-y-bela, in rural
Wales. This garden is featured in the book, offering insights into
the work in progress and Maynard’s design methods. Also included
is Maynard’s very first garden of his own, at Guanock House in
Lincolnshire, where he spent 10 years creating from a flat field a
formal layout, with a kitchen garden, knot garden and herbaceous
borders. A total of 12 gardens have been specially photographed,
and each is described through the seasons in personal text by
Maynard, including details of the brief and the plant selection.
The Gardens of Arne Maynard is completed by illustrated features
on various topics close to the designer’s heart, such as growing and
using roses, planting borders, creating productive kitchen gardens,
incorporating sculpture in the garden, and training trees and shrubs.
