Book Description

The Kinfolk Garden invites readers inside 30 spaces that blur the lines between indoors and out, from jungle-like rooftops to sprawling backyards.

Kinfolk’s books, with a combined 335,000 copies in print, have applied this lens to cooking, home design, and work. Now, in The Kinfolk Garden, the team turns its eye to outdoor spaces and the many ways they enhance our lives and help us foster community. With a focus on spaces that bring the outdoors in and the indoors out and people who have found ways to expertly incorporate the natural world into their lives, the book explores the garden as a place for work, play, entertaining, and inspiration.

Featuring 30 homeowners and their spaces in locations around the globe, The Kinfolk Garden offers an easy approach to bringing nature home.

What I Thought

In the beginning, I thought it would be one of your typical gardening books. But it’s not. It’s much more. You are shown photos of people’s stunning gardens, tips, and how to’s from around the world. It’s a visual feast for your eyes giving out buckets of energy and inspiration for you to apply to your own homes.

The author organises the book into three main themes: care, creativity, and the community. I like this part, as you see what people have done to their green spaces in these areas. It’s kind of like a case study. If you are into the arty side of the garden and its architecture and love great images to look at this is the book for you. Whether you have a passion for rooftop gardens, traditional English gardens, or even sandy desert ones this book will inspire you with its diversity.
