About this book

Garden and Landscape contains the distilled experience of a lifetime working in landscape, and particularly in gardens. Based on Mr Pasley's lectures at the English Gardening School and elsewhere, it is written for students and serious gardeners in a personal, characteristically forthright style. Garden and Landscape emphasizes the need for observation of our surroundings, the expectations of clients and the solutions to many problems faced by garden-owners and by designers contracted to find the remedies. Principles and comments are amplified with the author's own line drawings and layouts, further enhanced with many photographs.

Customer Reviews


Anthony du Gard Pasley (1929–2009) was very popular among students of garden design, who benefited from his wide experience, impeccable taste and deep knowledge of what actually worked in the making of a garden. After school in London and four years in the Army, he became a paying student in the landscape architectural practices of Brenda Colvin and Sylvia Crowe in London. Later he worked for the landscapers Wallace and Barr in Kent for four years, and won a gold medal for a garden at the Chelsea Flower Show, before returning as an Associate in Sylvia Crowe’s practice in 1967. There he widened his knowledge by working on larger landscape projects such as American air-bases, new towns, power stations and roads. During the late 1960s he also built up a garden-design practice from his home in Kent and, in particular, designed large gardens in south-east England and then in Europe. He lectured at the Regent Street and Northern Polytechnics in London, the Architectural School in Canterbury and elsewhere, and was among the first lecturers on garden design at the Inchbald School of Design in London. In 1983 he helped found the English Gardening School, then located at the Chelsea Physic Garden, and was on the panel of judges of gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show. He wrote perceptive articles about gardens for Country Life, The Observer newspaper, and the Architectural Review. He was an early member of the Landscape Institute, a Fellow of the Society of Garden Designers and was active in the Garden History Society. He was a masterly restorer and decorator of old houses and those in which he lived. In later life he divided his time between his homes at Groombridge in Kent, and Moffat in Scotland where he also busied himself with the affairs of the Paisley clan. Anthony du Gard Pasley never married and, sadly, died during the preparation of this book.
