Gardenlust by Christopher Woods

Staff Pick

Gardenlust (Timber Press, $40) is both a feast for the eyes and a thrilling peek at the future of garden design. Accoladed gardener Christopher Woods organizes the book geographically, presenting fifty of the world’s most stunning gardens across six continents. Yet the diversity Woods presents goes far beyond the mere geographical. From Enzo Enea’s Tree Museum in Switzerland to Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay, Woods is admirably broad-minded, showcasing an array of exhilaratingly modern—at times envelope-pushing—gardens, both public and private. Throughout, conundrums of globalism, sustainability, native planting, and urbanization are substantively addressed, but it’s the beautiful photographs, highlighting local botany and landscaping genius so incisively, that make this glossy volume. You’ll feel as if you’ve actually traveled across the world to glimpse these gardens. And yet: don’t be surprised if this book is the impetus for your next travels.
