The Gardens of Arne Maynard, published September 2015
Foreword by Rosie Atkins

Lindsey Taylor in Architectural Digest:
"The ability to read landscape, house, and environ before endeavouring to create a garden is a Maynard speciality that comes through brilliantly in this exciting new book."
Susie White in The English Garden:
"Arne's writing is eloquent and unpretentious. It gets to the spirit of each place, just as he has done with the gardens he has created for each site. This feeling for the land leads to a garden that is in harmony with its surroundings, and the book is a fascinating insight into his design process."
Kate Jury in Garden Design Journal:
"This is a book we all need to read: through it, we will understand better what we are trying to achieve, and what makes us enjoy gardens. By 'we', I mean garden designers, horticulturists, gardeners, as well as everybody who has ever walked through a gate or looked over a wall and sighed with pleasure at the discovery of a new garden. It is a big book, as full of ideas as it is of pictures."
The Gardens of Arne Maynard was published by Merrell in the UK, USA and Canada in September 2015. It is Arne's third book and his first devoted to gardens he has designed in the UK, Europe and the USA.
Arne's emerging garden at Allt-y-bela,
Monmouthshire, is featured in the book, offering insights into the
work in progress there and his design methods. Also included is
Arne's very first garden at Guanock House in Lincolnshire, where he
spent 10 years creating from a flat field a formal layout, with a
kitchen garden, knot garden and herbaceous borders. A total of 12
gardens have been specially photographed, and each is described
through the seasons in personal text by Arne, including details of
the brief and the plant selection. The Gardens of Arne
Maynard is completed by illustrated chapters which Arne calls
'Essentials'. They all focus on elements of garden design that Arne
particularly loves: Roses; Kitchen Gardens; Pleached, Pollarded and
Trained; Topiary; Craftsmanship; and Borders.
