Published on 1st October 2020 by Phaidon The Garden Elements and Styles is Toby's latest book. Open the eye-catching yet calming front coverand within you find a thoughtfully-compiled and varied compendium of 209 expressions of ornamental garden art. The selection of elements, features, planting and garden styles is global and covers a timespan of about 2,000 years, and organised alphabetically from Allée to Zeitgeist the individual entries consist of an illuminating, exploratory text complemented by a rich selection of stunning contemporary photographs. The Garden: Elements and Styles is not a garden history text, yet to have some understanding of the what and why of ornamental gardens old and new - the components and styles and reasons for their expression - makes not only gardens themselves that much more interesting, but it also opens up a whole cornucopia of ideas and inspirations. These are the aims of the book: to shine an exploratory (perhaps even on occasion, a revelatory) light on an selection of heritage and contemporary elements, features and styles; to celebrate of gardens and their component elements as works of art; to explain their artistic and cultural expression and merits; and throughout to be absolutely relevant to and inspirational for today’s gardeners, garden-makers, garden designers, garden visitors and those interested in the story of the garden.
