Setting the Scene – George Carter
Written by George Carter and with additional photography by the renowned garden photographer Marianne Majerus this book has the subtitle ‘A garden design masterclass from Repton to the Modern Age’. George Carter is himself a leading garden designer and in this book he describes his own work of the past 30 years and places it in the context of the writings of Humphrey Repton (1752-1818).
Filled with both inspiring ideas and practical advice, Setting the Scene shows how successful gardens are designed and made; from small urban gardens to large country estates across the world.
The book is divided into chapters that include The Approach, Structure, Ornament and Garden Furniture.
The review of this title in House & Garden (June 2018) says that “Ultimately, George’s book shows how adaptable Repton’s ideas are for gardens of all sizes today. There is a relaxed feeling, as if you are a participant in a three-decade long conversation between the two.”
