Discover 100 of the most beautiful English gardens and landscapes designed since 1914, courtesy of the Twentieth Century Society. See how English gardens and landscapes have evolved over the last century, and how they complement buildings of the period. These stunning examples, chosen by the Twentieth Century Society, move from the Arts and Crafts garden and the garden city, through landscapes created for mid-century housing, to the low-maintenance gardens of the 1980s and recent trends for community and wildlife gardens. An introduction covers the development of garden and landscape design in the last 100 years, while short essays discuss the influence of key C20 English gardens, like Sissinghurst and Great Dixter; those who pioneered new plants and planting styles (such as Margery Fish, Beth Chatto, and Piet Oudolf); and landscapes in housing developments, new towns, and public spaces.
