Listing Detail Tabs
by Tim Newbury
As well as a large range of individual designs for complete gardens and garden features, this book also includes ideas for water gardens, rockeries and herb gardens. A detailed plant directory provides cultivation and usage notes on many plants listed.
Review from From Library Journal
Pick a style of garden (cottage, kitchen, family, etc.), see a plan complete with a planting list, add a feature such as a pool or pergola, and create your own unique garden. It may sound simplistic, but this book is leagues above the common garden design primer. The author has won three gold medals for design at London's renowned Chelsea Flower Show, and his good taste shows throughout. The design plans are all presented with variations based on size and shape. They also provide alternatives based on cost, style, or ease of construction and are key numbered to a planting list, which describes a selection of plants that give good value for the money. Besides the detailed sketches, there are superb photographs with the best depth of focus this reviewer has seen in any gardening book. Recommended for all gardening collections.?Daniel Starr, Museum of Modern Art, New York
