Beyond the Meadows

Portrait of a Natural and Biodiverse Garden by Krautkopf

Beyond the Meadows
$ 39.99| £ 32.50 (* recommended retail price)

This beautiful and inspirational portrait of a country garden shows how its owners created deep connections to the natural world with techniques and advice any gardener can use.

Photographers Susann Probst and Yannic Schon left Berlin for the German countryside in 2018 with the aim of growing wholesome produce whilst maintaining a healthy ecosystem through sustainable gardening. They bought an old farmhouse on a plot of land with room for a vegetable garden, an orchard, a wildflower meadow, and a greenhouse.

Filled with useful and hard-won information that is the result of both ingenuity and trial and error, this book takes readers on a detailed and exquisitely illustrated tour of the property and its development over the years. Susann and Yannic share what they’ve learned about garden design, soil composition, beneficial organisms, edible perennials, plant care, and self-sufficiency, and include a list of all the species and varieties they’ve planted. A breathtaking photographic section celebrates the beauty of the land through the seasons.

More than a garden-variety gardening guide, this deeply personal and gorgeously produced book documents a lifelong dream becoming a reality—and celebrates a contemporary approach to country life that will speak to anyone looking for ways to deepen their own relationship with nature.

“An utterly gorgeous book. There is inspiration and wisdom on every page.”

“You don’t have to be a gardener to be touched by this book. You will love this book if you’re about to embark on a gardening journey, you will love this book even if you only garden on a balcony. You will love this book if you love beautiful garden photography but most of all, you will love this book because it’s honest, inspiring and you know it comes from the heart.”
