    Paradise Gardens examines, explores and interprets seventeen belief systems - grouped into five themed sections.


    Plants and gardens have always been a cornerstone of all major world religions and belief systems. The Fields of Reeds in Ancient Egypt, Eden in Christianity, the Isles of the Immortals in China and the Pure Land in Buddhist Japan are just some of the divine gardens promised to the faithful or earthly paradises imbued with symbolism and ritual. And in all religions plants have their own religious meanings and associations, ceremonial or ritualistic purpose and use.

    Taking a global perspective and with a chronology of over 5000 years, Paradise Gardens examines, explores and interprets seventeen belief systems grouped into five themed sections. Dr Musgrave is able to explore and explain these gardens both within their religious framework but also within the wider contexts of garden history and the prevailing zeitgeist.

    Gardens designed by Paul Bangay are renowned for their elegant proportions, careful use of materials and inspired choice of planting.

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.
