The Thoughtful Gardener
In The Thoughtful Gardener, Jinny Blom shares her insight into the creative process she has developed while designing more than 250 gardens around the world. Jinny believes that garden design should lead from a house and its context. And today, Best Design Books is going to show everything about this amazing book!
For her, the design is more a matter of intelligence and appropriateness than imposing a particular style. As such, Jinny’s approach, which she demonstrates in this book in the many and varied gardens she has created, can be applied to any garden in any situation.
The reader can take inspiration from Jinny’s principles and apply them to their own garden, whatever the shape, size of plot or aspect, to create a garden that will work for them and their situation, giving enormous satisfaction for years to come.
“No garden can comfortably survive without a strong skeletal structure. Having walked the site and breathed in its character it is time to set to work with pencil and paper and consider the bones. Drawing a plan by hand evokes every aspect of the developing garden in your mind’s eye. The pace and rhythm of the garden spaces, the views, the practicalities all settle into their rightful place. In shaping a plan all the real and invented intentions emerge. This is how the beauty of a place is uncovered and made real.” – The Thoughtful Gardener
