Product description

Since 1997 Luciano Giubbilei has been creating serenely beautiful gardens in locations on three continents. Giubbilei is known for the understated elegance of his designs, but is constantly evolving his approach, both in response to individual clients and as his ideas develop. His work draws on his Italian heritage, especially the Renaissance gardens of the Villa Gamberaia in Tuscany, and a distinctively classical combination of restraint and opulent materials. This book examines 12 significant gardens from Giubbilei's portfolio. Each project is fully documented, from the preparation of mood boards to final planting and finishing. Sections on site development, nursery production and the sourcing of plants, and the artists and craftsmen with whom Giubbilei works complete the in-depth account of his working methods and sources of inspiration. Fully illustrated with planting plans, documentary images and photographs by Steven Wooster, this is the definitive work on the gardens of an acclaimed designer.
