Summary
"Much has been written about London's terraced houses with their simple dignity, their economical use of space, and the sense of comfort and human scale. Yet the small gardens that lie before or behind the houses in this great city have until now been overlooked. In this groundbreaking account of the development of the private garden in London, eminent garden historian Todd Longstaffe-Gowan provides a delightful remedy to the oversight. Recognizing the contribution of modest domestic gardens to the texture of eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century London, Longstaffe-Gowan explores in detail the small gardens, their owners, and their sigificance to the development of the metropolis. Some two hundred illustrations enhance this rich and fascinating discussion." "Town gardening was conventionally maligned as a trifling pursuit conducted within inhospitable and infertile enclosures. This view changed during the eighteenth century as middle class Londoners found in gardening activities an outlet for personal enjoyment and expression. This book describes how gardening affected the lives of many, becoming part of the ritual of the daily round and gratifying material aspirations. Longstaffe-Gowan charts how the private garden became for the first time a common expectation, how the rise of town gardening concided with new social and economic views, how temporary fanciful gardens became popular, how gardens in the city related to suburban gardens, and much more about the origins and growth of domestic gardens in London."--BOOK JACKET
