"Arne Maynard is one
of the most talented
garden designers
working in Britain
today. Whether in the
city or in the depths
of the country,
his gardens are a
magical combination
of architecture and
romance, the classic
and the contemporary,
and relate to their
surroundings in subtle
ways." Tricia Guild
