It was made by Roy Strong and his wife, theatre designer Julia Trevelyan Oman, between 1973 and 2003. In the latter year Roys book about the garden and how it was made (The Laskett: the story of a garden) was published, Julia died, and Roy started to remake the garden. Remaking a Garden: the Laskett Gardens Transformed is the story of that remaking, told by Roy, with photographs by Clive Boursnell, who has photographed the whole process from the beginning.
