PRIVATE GARDENS

This volume offers rare access into the most beautiful and unique gardens in the Mediterranean region designed by renowned landscape architect Jean Mus. From lush coastal estates or peaceful countryside havens to green oases amid the hustle and bustle of the city, celebrated landscape architect Jean Mus’s lavish gardens—whether perched above the sea or nestling in the heart of a town—are always perfectly integrated into the surrounding environment and incorporate a rich spectrum of Mediterranean influences, including pottery, slate walkways, sleek water channels, and regional flora.Taking readers on an exclusive tour of the world’s most spectacular private Mediterranean gardens that have made Jean Mus’s name, this work guides us through the South of France into Greece and Portugal, divulging the stories behind his creations and sharing technical and reflective anecdotes from the designer himself. Accompanied by stunning photographs by the late Vincent Motte, this book offers inspiration to gardeners, landscape artists, and lovers of the Mediterranean region alike.
