New Nordic Gardens - Scandinavian Landscape Design

 

Few people have difficulty conjuring images of modern Scandinavian design, whose influence over the past century has reached around the world. More difficult for many is imagining the quiet landscapes of the Nordic countries, which range from the flatlands of Denmark to the dramatic mountains and fjords of Norway. These majestic environments, combined with long summer days and light-poor winters, raking light and dense birch forests, have given rise to exceptionally refined examples of garden and landscape design.
The Nordic countries are famed for their modern design and architecture, but their garden and landscape design have been overlooked – until now. New Nordic Gardens presents the best gardens to have been produced in the region over the past ten years through a practitioner’s eyes.  
Organized by themes that encapsulate the special ambience and lifestyle of the Scandinavian countries – Simplicity, Silence, Fragility, Nakedness, Attunement, Boldness, Openness and Care – each garden is presented through images and texts explaining its unique aspects and describing its particularly Scandinavian characteristics.
The timelessness of Nordic design has proven itself around the world for many decades. Now it is time for the quality of its gardens and landscapes to come into the light. Arranged to provide maximum inspiration, not just for northern climes but for temperate environments around the world, New Nordic Gardens brings the beauty of Scandinavian landscape design to designers and gardeners all over the globe.

Peter Korn

Peter Korns Garden - Giving plants what they want

 

Peter Korn has boldly swept preconseptions about gardening aside in this landmak work. Rather than mere settings for a few flowery jewels, a garden embodies the dynamic microcosm of a vast cliff in Kyrgystan. It captures an entire desert or prairie vista in miniature. We all know that gardens derive somehow from nature - this is almost a truism. Korn demonstrates that our garden habitats are most satisfying and successful when carefully crafted with bold natural models and communities in mind. In a real sense, a garden is the key to the wild - Nature herself becomes the garden! He schows repeatedly, step by step bow he collapses a whole ecosystem into a garden bed. His juxtaposition of pictures taken in the wild and garden settings is revelatory. I know that henceforth I schall greate gardens with whole plant communities in mind. In a world of accelerating global warming and rampant humanity, Peter Korn proves how much both gardens and untrammeled nature really matter. (Panayoti Kelaidis, Senior Curator and Director of Outreach, Denver Botanic Gardens)

Ulf Nordfjell

Fourteen Gardens

 

Awarded Best in Show at the 2009 Chelsea Flower Show for his dynamic blend of Swedish modernism and English romanticism, Ulf Nordfjell is one of the world's leading contemporary garden designers, and this is the first book in English about his work.
A master when it comes to composing with perennials, grass and bulbs, Nordfjell also has a deep engagement with the surrounding landscape. Materials such as Swedish granite, steel and timber give his gardens structure and a powerful identity, animated by water and light. Every detail of the composition is meticulously worked out, and the gardens reveal new aspects through the seasons.
This book covers fourteen gardens, including the 2009 Best in Show and the 2007 Gold Medal gardens at Chelsea. Accompanying the text are photographs that represent the gardens in all seasons in both general views and details.
