Synopsis

Ulf Nordfjell Fourteen Gardens by Ulf Nordfjell, Jerry Harpur

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 Ulf Nordfjell's thoughtful and lucid text, Jerry Harpur's superb photographs, taken over several years, represent the gardens in all seasons in both general views and details.

Reviews

The book shows above all that garden architecture is about much more than just plants. Ulf Nordfjell puts the focus upon structure, light, colour and form. Be inspired and enjoy yourself! Elle Interior 'Ulf's skills are unique, combining clean, uncompromising lines with subtle planting.
Daily Telegraph An essential reference book for all modern garden designers. BBC Gardens Illustrated The gardens themselves

- and the photography - are both exquisite and the book is a gem. English Garden His passion bursts off the page. House & Garden A lovely book from one of the world's top garden designers. Oxford Times For sleek modernisits plump for Ulf Nordfjell's Fourteen Gardens, all beautifully photographed by Jerry Harper. If you'd rather spend the summer on your own private Swedish island that compete with the tourists and the heat in Tuscany, this is your bag. Independent This fine portrayal should serve to propogate his work to a growing international audience. Garden Design Journal
