The Contemporary Garden is an illustrated survey of 100 iconic and innovative gardens from around the world, spanning from the early 1920s to the present day. Like Phaidon's popular Garden Book, this informative source book is accessible and easy to use. It includes an unrivaled range of gardens by designers, architects, and land artists - from Garrett Eckbo's Alcoa Forecast Garden (1925) and Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye (1929) to Ian Hamilton Finlay's Little Sparta (1966) and horticultural installation artist Tony Heywood's Split (2003).

Each garden has been selected for its unique design that made a break from traditional gardens and presented a new, sometimes conceptual, design. The selection of gardens includes both private and public spaces, and several different aesthetic types are featured: Modernist gardens, conceptual spaces, roof and water gardens, contemporary interpretations of traditional garden styles, and urban parks. Other examples include Gabriel Guevrekian's Villa Noailles (1927) in France, Fernando Caruncho's startlingly unusual Wheat Garden (1990) in Spain, Kathryn Gustafson's Diana Memorial Fountain (2004) in England, and Tadao Ando's Zen-like Garden of Fine Arts (1994) in Japan.

Thanks to the book's chronological organization, readers can trace the development of the non-traditional garden from the early experimentations of the twentieth century to the visionary ideas of today's designers. Each entry consists of a full-page image with an accompanying text, placing the garden and its maker in stylistic and historical context. The book also features a glossary of terms and movements, a directory of gardens open to the public, and anindex. The Contemporary Garden is a practical resource and an easy-to-use guide, unique in its appeal to both the general reader and the practicing gardener.
