    Publishing status: OCTOBER 2017 NEW RELEASE

    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.

    A haven. A work of art. A legacy.

Now, this tribute to the much-loved designer takes you through every room and garden, with stunning photography by Earl Carter and Simon Griffiths. A beautiful memento of an extraordinary person.

    Gardens designed by Paul Bangay are renowned for their elegant proportions, careful use of materials and inspired choice of planting. In one garden precise box hedging frames billowing beds of perennials; in another, olive trees emerge from an undergrowth of rosemary against a dramatic coastal landscape. In a Paul Bangay garden, you can be sure that every plant has been carefully selected to achieve a particular purpose at a specific site.

    This guide is the perfect companion to Paul Bangay's Garden Design Handbook, which revealed Paul's insights into successful garden design and construction, and answers the question: what do I plant and where? Rich with anecdotes about what has worked best over the years, and with a special focus on plants for our changing climate, this collection showcases Paul's A-list plants with photography from the best in the business, Simon Griffiths.

    Whether for an inner-city courtyard or a rambling rural estate, this book contains the practical advice readers need to give their own patch of green the Paul Bangay look.

    Respected landscape designer Myles Baldwin believes that for the success of any period garden design, consideration of both architecture and garden to achieve an integrated whole is vital. In Period Gardens, he discusses his approach by drawing on examples of garden 'case studies' from the UK, Europe and Australia, identifying the defining features of the major design eras, from the Renaissance and English Arts and Crafts to Victorian, Art Deco and Modernist. Myles looks at the way each landscape relates to the house it surrounds, how he interprets and reworks the relevant garden styles, and how history, architecture and garden design can be melded to create a dynamic, modern landscape. As well as providing a broad-reaching introduction to garden history, Myles gives practical, technical details about garden elements such as paths, fences, swimming pools and plant types, providing a useful guide to anyone wanting to achieve authenticity and liveability in their own period garden.
