Pleasure Garden magazine takes inspiration from the pleasure gardens of 18th century London. Stepping away from the practicalities of the garden, the magazine places it within a wider cultural context as a place filled with art, music, fashion, society and sex. This issue’s theme is ‘Au Naturel’ — its content ranges from icon William Robinson’s ‘natural’ style of gardening to Howard Sooley’s photographs of Derek Jarman and Dungeness.

Rakesprogress magazine is “a contemporary look at the world outside” that began as a personal exploration of a new garden, and an antidote to an increasingly digital lifestyle. This issue focuses on landscapes, and includes star-gazing with the artist Lucy May Schofield and Will Self’s take on ‘psychogeography’, as well as Richard E. Grant on why he mows the lawn even in winter.
