William Dangar’s Garden design business reaches its 25th year, this book celebrates his unique approach to landscape, his ethos, his clients and collaborators. The twenty generous chapters of gardens in the book showcase Will’s skill, ease and the grand sweep of his vision, while also deconstructing the elements of the garden’s design and planting. Each is photographed at its optimum moment – not when newly planted – but when nature has reasserted itself and there is certain expressiveness, a sense of wildness, breaking through the original structure and order. Each project is described through Will’s frank perspective chronicling the challenges, the planting choices, the collaborations, the relationships and the joy that makes these gardens significant.
