Homefront in the Garden
picture
Features:-
Diarmuid Gavin came to popular attention as the gardening half of the design team in the television series Home Front, with Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen (Ginger to Gavin's Fred). Home Front in the Garden sees him on his own, showcasing his striking architectural garden fantasies. It would be safe to say that these tend to the extravagant end of the garden spectrum, a long way from the flower-filled paradises of Vita Sackville-West or Rosemary Verey. Gavin confesses to being inspired by, among other influences, the sets of old Star Trek episodes. This is postmodernist gardening with a vengeance. A long, narrow garden is transversely divided by a huge steel shark's fin; a serpentine hill, studded with lights, extends the length of another space, ending in a mound that conceals a cave; a glass cube room hovers above a pool surrounded by a rainforest garden of ferns and other flowerless exotics. Gavin provides a comprehensive outline of the principles underlying his approach and explores in some depth the properties of the materials, some of them new, some merely new to the garden, which allow him to express with such vividness the personalities and lifestyles of his patrons. Nor does he neglect plants. A number of detailed case-studies show his ideas and theories at work. This is powerfully inspirational gardening, though definitely not for the nervous. --Robin Davidson

How the Boy Next Door Turned Out - An Autobiography
picture
Features:-
His work has long been recognised for its innovation and his reputation for clashes with the so-called gardening 'establishment' are famous. He has won many accolades including Silver Gilt at Chelsea Flower Show, however, arguably his biggest achievement was to popularize gardening through the medium of television and move it away from the exclusive and stultifying atmosphere of a private club. This is Diarmuid's characteristically open and honest account of his chaotic, inspired and infuriating (to himself and others) road to success. This hardback book has 300 pages and measures: 24 x 16 x 2.5cm.
