The great Edwardian gardens of Harold Peto

£99.00

Product description

Harold Peto (1854-1933) was one of the great landscape designers of the Edwardian era. A great exponent of the ultra-romantic Italianate style so fashionable in the first two decades of the twentieth century, he was also influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement.

Much admired by both Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens, he was recognised as one of the most successful garden designers of his generation, building up a formidable reputation for his work both in England and the South of France.

Garden historian Robin Whalley's illuminating commentary is brought to life by 200 dazzling photographs from the Country Life archive, showing many of Peto's gardens in their heyday. Among those featured are: Iford Manor, Peto's own house and garden; Easton Lodge, the garden of Daisy, Countess of Warwick, with its pergola, water garden and Japanese tea house; West Dean, which boasts a 300-foot pergola; and Ilnacullin in Eire, one of his best-known gardens. This latest volume in the acclaimed Country Life series is of great appeal to garden historians, designers and amateur enthusiasts alike.
