Description

This collection of superbly photographed stories of five gardens with character and “inner spirit” have been shaped by the friendship between their owners and their designer. The selected gardens encapsulate the characteristics landscape designer Michael Cooke considers vital in the making of a truly beautiful, livable garden.

They have a distinct voice that reflects not only the personality and style of the owners, but also the longstanding relationship and emotional connection between the owners and Michael, who has maintained and developed the gardens over many years.

The author

Michael Cooke has been designing gardens since 1983. Shortly after completing his studies in horticulture he purchased a nursery specialising in rare and unusual plants, before opening a boutique garden centre. Today he focuses solely on design. He and his team have undertaken commissions around Australia and internationally; for example, at Bath in the UK, reworking a beautiful historic garden surrounding a 13th century priory. Michael has been garden editor for Marie Claire Lifestyle, and written for many other magazines (including Gardens Illustrated) and newspapers. He and his gardens have been featured on several television gardening programs.
