John D. Sedding (1838 91) was an English church architect and an
influential figure in the Arts and Crafts movement. Having worked
in Penzance and Bristol, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal
Institute of British Architects in 1874 and set up a practice in
London, eventually becoming a neighbour of William Morris. His
designs included new churches such as Holy Trinity in Sloane Street
(1888 90), Holy Redeemer in Clerkenwell (1887 95), and All Saints,
Falmouth (1887 90), as well as restoration projects and decorative
work. In 1888 he moved to Kent, and developed his interests in
gardening and garden design. This book, completed in 1890 and
published posthumously in 1891, sets out Sedding's vision for the
landscaped garden. It helped to revive garden features such as
terraces, covered walkways and topiary, and inspired generations of
garden designers, particularly in the Arts and Crafts movement.
