Blurring the lines between the natural and the cultivated, this title observes visionary and unusual gardens in all their varying forms. Exploring the out of the ordinary, this book showcases a wide range of projects that reflect the shifting mindsets and cultures of their locale, challenging our notion of what a garden can be, and how they can make us feel. Taking into consideration climate change and biodiversity, 'The Avant Gardens' celebrates the cultivated natural world.
