one trend to take note of is the increase in garden restoration - for example there is a project at the moment to restore Birkenhead Park, the only Grade I listed park in England. Although it may sound odd to mention in terms of "contemporary trends", it is becoming significant.

the problem that you have in looking at current trends is that of course they vary with the region, for climatic as well as cultural reasons. Down here the leading place is the lycée horticole d'Antibes. For Britain I would suggest contacting the Landscape Institute.

it is likely that you will want to look at current journals rather than books and the Institute can certainly direct you to the main ones.

trends in landscape design are complicated to explain - and well beyond my limited knowledge - because the real trends involve a complex understanding of horticulture. Clever "displays" that die off after a month or two are not the same thing, though there are those that would have you believe that they are.
