"A Lutyens house with a Jekyll garden" was an Edwardian catchphrase denoting the very best - a house and garden created by Sir Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll. Using photographs, sketches, drawings and planting plans, this book is a joint biography of Lutyens and Jekyll which explores the Victorian and Edwardian periods and the aspirations of the clients that fostered the partnership that has had such an enduring influence on landscape architecture."
