Editorial Reviews

Review

“One of the dozens of sites documented in Louisa Jones’s ‘Mediterranean Landscape Design’.... [Ian Hamilton] Finlay’s Provençal fantasy is a testament to the universality of his art, as much at home among olive and lavender terraces as the flinty hills of Scotland.” (Wall Street Journal)

About the Author

Canadian by birth, Louisa Jones has lived in Southern France for nearly forty years. She is the author of many books on gardens and landscape, including The French Country Garden and Reinventing the Garden.

Clive Nichols was voted Garden Photographer of the Year by the Garden Writers Guild. He is based in England.

More About the Author

For Garden Week in Provence information, see www.susanwornertours.com. For updates on Louisa Jones' books and activities, see the blog at http://louisajones.wordpress.com/

Canadian born Louisa Jones has been gardening in southern France since 1975 when she and her husband bought the old farmhouse they still inhabit. She has written some thirty books about contemporary French gardens, recently specializing in Mediterranean regions. For her first illustrated book, Gardens in Provence (1992) Louisa visited more than two hundred gardens of all styles and sizes. She found that, in the Mediterranean, there is no separation between ornamental and useful or productive gardening. Traditional Mediterranean gardening is "multiple": many pleasures, many uses for all seasons. Like Mediterranean cuisine, it is locally based and economical, but capable of great refinement; pleasure-giving, healthy and accessible to all. It has proven its capacity to maintain a durable partnership with the land. Most recently, Louisa Jones has been exploring vernacular Mediterranean landscapes, worked and fashioned by humankind for millenia, that are today biodiversity hotspots and an inspiration to gifted artists. Louisa has also published two books with leading French ecologist, Gilles Clément. She writes in both English and French, and gardens every day. She also organizes visits to private designer gardens around Avignon in April and October.

Just got this yesterday and had a quick spin through the photos. Oh boy! I'm a budget-driven DIY'er and find a lot of the beautiful garden design elements I saw could easily be adapted to my one-woman garden show. I usually don't buy "picture" books without the see inside option but took a chance. Lovely book.

I got this book for the photos of one amazing landscape designer (who name now escapes me) and was disappointed to realize that there were only a few photos of his work. I am less interested in some of the others. Its not a bad book, but not a 'must have' either...at least for me!

Not much for photos in this book. I was hoping for more physical examples of built work of contemporary Mediterranean landscapes.
