A gorgeous peek into the personal garden of an award-winning, playful, postmodernist gardenerThe garden designer George Carter, a Gold Medalist at the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower show, the world's most prestigious flower show, is noted for his subtle and witty approach to garden design. He has designed and made gardens for Burleigh, Penshurst, and other stately homes, together with many smaller gardens, all using ingenious ideas for their embellishment and decoration. He also designs the annual, sold-out exhibition at Buckingham Palace. In this book, photographed in his own beautiful Norfolk garden, which exemplifies his approach to garden design, George not only shows how he created the garden, but also demonstrates quick and easy ways to decorate and transform your garden with originality and paint. From urns to statues and cut-outs, to humble flowerpots and chain store-bought garden sheds, George's ideas bring the theater to the garden in the best possible way.
