It is with great sadness we report the sudden death of Michael Packard on Wednesday June 1st 2022.

The family are working through his affairs, and as such, no trading is possible that would usually have occurred through Michael himself, however some books are still available from his distributors.

For anything urgent, email   but please be aware that this address is infrequently monitored.

Your patience and understanding will be appreciated through this difficult period.

Paul Cooper

Paul Cooper was born in Manchester and now lives in Wales. He was a professional sculptor at the start of his career, and taught the subject at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, 1972-74, and art and design at Lancaster University, 1974-86. He was a visiting professor and artist in residence at the Maryland Institute of Art, Baltimore, in 1984. He became interested in garden design in that year and later lectured at St Martin's College, London, the Inchbald School of Design, London, Writtle College, Chelmsford and Leeds Metropolitan University. He won gold, silver and bronze medals for gardens at RHS Shows, and his 'Cool and Sexy' Garden at the 1994 Chelsea Flower Show caused a sensation. Since then Paul has lectured widely and has become recognized as one of the front-runners in the emergence of conceptualist garden design.
