The Gardens of Ulf Nordfjell

Foreword by Annie Gatti

Photography by Jason Ingram

The internationally renowned garden designer Ulf Nordfjell has created many stunning and celebrated gardens and parks. He has won numerous awards (incluing RHS Chelsea Gold Medals) for his gardens, which combine the sweep and presence of masterful place-making with a keen plantsman's eye for the detail that can be enjoyed through variety, combination and interest in colour, texture and movement.

The ten new projects in this book - from an island garden in coastal Sweden to a Stockholm town garden to a villa in the South of France - are more than just a selection of beautiful gardens, however. They also provide the opportunity to consider how parks and gardens are affected by climate change as well as the changing seasons. The book takes the form of an incomparable garden journey from northern Sweden to the Mediterranean, a journey that passes through many latitudes and climate zones. The informative text gives an insight into the ideas behind the design of estates, urban parks and domestic gardens. But Nordfjell also grapples with the great question of our time: the changes in the climate that will affect - that are already affecting - our parks and gardens in the short and long term.

 

  • Focuses on the creation of gardens in a changing climate
  • Contains detailed garden plans and plant lists, including botanical names
  • A though-provoking look at more than just exquisite garden design
