Inspiring. Beautiful. Practical.

In the last decade or so, the modern family house has undergone a design revolution as modern décor and furniture have become the standard and living spaces have opened up for family interaction. In this book, Caroline Tilston takes us out the back door and continues this process into the garden. She showcases 29 stylish gardens that have been designed with both children and adults in mind. The gardens draw on an enormous range of ideas and inspirations and all are thoroughly modern in the way that they create spaces conducive to family life, whether relaxing from everyday stress or entertaining children.

An engaging sourcebook for any gardener or would-be gardener, Modern Family Gardens is full of design and planting ideas from the most innovative garden designers working today. Ranging from tiny urban yards to large country gardens, the featured case studies demonstrate that gardens can be beautiful and inventive at any scale. The book includes stunning photography showing both the overall gardens and the design details. Each garden features an insider?s guide that includes tips on how to re-create the look and an easy to read, bullet point ?how-to? feature relating to the garden. There are also useful addresses for sourcing the features, furniture and materials, as well as contacts for the garden designers whose work is shown and a plant directory for the plants included in the designs.
