The Gardens of Luciano Giubbilei

Andrew Wilson

Photography by Steven Wooster

Foreword by Tom Stuart-Smith

 

Since 1997 Luciano Giubbilei has been creating serenely beautiful gardens in locations on three continents. Giubbilei is known for the understated elegance of his designs, but is constantly evolving his style and approach, both in response to individual clients and as his ideas develop. His work draws on his Italian heritage, especially the Renaissance gardens of the Villa Gamberaia in Tuscany, and a distinctively classical combination of restraint and opulent materials. This book examines 12 significant gardens from Giubbilei’s portfolio, including the garden that won him a gold medal at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show in 2009. Each project is fully documented, from the preparation of mood boards to final planting and finishing. Separate sections on the design process, site development, nursery production and the sourcing of plants, as well as the artists and craftsmen with whom Giubbilei collaborates, offer a fascinating insight into his working methods and sources of inspiration. Accessibly written by a leading garden professional and fully illustrated with planting plans, behind-the-scenes images and atmospheric photographs by Steven Wooster, this is the definitive work on the gardens of an acclaimed designer. 

 

Features projects from throughout Luciano Giubbilei’s award-winning career, in locations from London and Geneva to Morocco
