John Brookes brings to this definitive guide the culmination of his 40 years' experience. Here he explores and explains the principles of garden design, bringing to these richly illustrated pages the same enthusiasm and expertise that have made his courses on garden design at Denmans (his renowned garden and design school in West Sussex) and at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew in England, so popular with students from all over the world. Each lavishly illustrated chapter is devoted to single design elements such as Shape, Surface, Structure, or Water which, in combination, create a well-constructed garden. Under these headings John Brookes presents an incredible range of inspiring ideas using his inimitable conversational writing style, a host of extraordinary photographs, and annotated sketches and diagrams.
... a book that is as beautiful to read as it is to look at...
