The Nordic countries are admired for their modern design sophistication, but their contemporary gardens and landscapes are less well known. Against a backdrop of deep winters, long summer days and raking light, the Scandinavian countries have produced particular responses to planting, landscaping and the relationship between home and garden. Featuring the most inspiring examples in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland, this book brings new ideas for creating modern outdoor spaces no matter where you live. 288 pages, paperback. Annika Zetterman.
