Luciano Giubbilei: The Art of Making Gardens

Luciano Giubbilei is known for his award-winnning gardens at the Royal Horticultural Society's Chelsea Flower Show and for his gardens for private houses across the world. Since 2012 he has been working on an experimental flower bed in the famous garden of Great Dixter in East Sussex, in close collaboration with the head gardener, Fergus Garrett. In this new book he explains the devlopment of his style over the last few years - a pivotal time for his design work - and describes the philosophy by which he works. The first section contains texts and images that explore the garden at Great Dixter and Luciano's work there, across all four seasons. The second section examines Luciano's love of craft and traditionally made objects, and - through visits to and discussion with craftsmen in the UK and beyond - explores the contribution such work makes to his garden design. The third section constitutes a wider investigation of Luciano's influences under the broad themes of water, colour and texture, illustrating with photographs and words exactly what it is about the world that inspires him and how that is manifested in his designs, with specific reference to his gardens for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2014 and the Venice Biennale in 2015. The gardens are described and illustrated in full with specially commissioned photographs by Andrew Montgomery and Carl Bengston. Full plants lists are also included.
