Taking inspiration from art, sculpture, Chicago prairies and folk
architecture such as tree houses, Dan Pearson--acclaimed garden designer
and "green-fingered guru" at the U.K. newspaper The Observer--lays
out his design philosophy and working process, giving readers direct
insight into his collaborative approach of working with nature, instead
of imposing preconceptions upon it. Journeying from New Zealand to Japan
via Thames-side barge gardens, Pearson focuses on the spirit of place
as it emerges through geography, history, architecture and native flora,
extrapolating this sense of place into a new gardening philosophy. Very
far from conventional gardening books, Spirit radically expands
the genre, inviting us to understand the act of gardening in the light
of contemporary needs and with a keen environmental awareness; Pearson
particularly stresses the importance of skills such as being able to
"read" a variety of landscapes (both wild and cultivated), and of
staying open to what those landscapes suggest in terms of cultivation.
This long-awaited paperback edition uses 400 of Pearson's own
much-admired photographs as reference points. Dan Pearson began his career as a professional designer in 1987. He is co-author of The Essential Garden Book (with Sir Terence Conran) and author of The Garden: A Year at Home Farm. He has presented and appeared in several TV series and has designed five award-winning Chelsea Flower Show gardens.
