    The Mid-Century Modern Garden links the design of homes and gardens popular during the mid-century period of 1940 - 1970 to contemporary style and the desire to create healthy, sustainable lives. A substantial introduction looks at the transformation of Modernism into Mid-Century Modern (MCM); the impact of war and how it led to the spread and development of modernism. There will be particular focus on Frank Lloyd Wright and Midwest modern, the arrival of Bauhaus on the East Coast of America, Post-War Suburbs and the rise of West Coast Ranch-style living.
    The book then outlines how to make a modern home landscape in the MCM style in six thematic chapters: the Outline: Plotting the lay of the land: Site, climate and indigenous flora. Soil and terrain The Plan: Designing for use and beauty: how to create meaningful relationships between the house and garden Inspiration Boards: Visualising a personal statement: Balancing richness with simplicity: Floors, walls, light, shade. Making it Sustainable: Under the hood maintenance matters: Irrigation, soil amendment, container planting. Materials: Textures, colours and shapes in hardscaping and planting schemes. Garden rooms: For outdoors living: kitchen, dining, relaxing, physical activity.
    Fully illustrated with archive and contemporary photographs and drawings in colour and black & white, all thematic chapters will include classic examples of mid-century architecture and landscaping accompanied by examples of gardens executed according to MCM principles, and drawn from the portfolios of contemporary designers in the USA, Europe and Pacific Rim.
