3.0 out of 5 stars Fresh new ideas in the world of garden design! 16 Feb 2001
By A Customer
A great book for anybody with an interest in gardening and design; it provides wonderful inspiration schemes which could be applied to your own gardens, as much of the information is focused on small scale schemes rather than huge landscapes. It also gives useful ideas on hard materials as well as plants which many books seem to ignore. I would recommend anyone out there looking for inspirational ideas to buy this book!!

3.0 out of 5 stars A word of warning 16 May 2014
By Marand TOP 500 REVIEWER
This book has exactly the same content as the RHS "New Formal Gardens" by Jill Billington. They were only published a couple of years apart so why it was felt necessary to change the title is beyond me. Needless to say I only discovered this after I had bought both books!

5.0 out of 5 stars A dynamic, practical, and effective approach to gardening 5 July 2001
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
In New Classic Gardens, expert gardener and horticulturalist Jill Billington presents a dynamic, practical, and effective approach to gardening that effectively reinterprets traditional formal designs in a way that is accommodating to small-scale outdoor rooms. The wealth of accessible information for permanent planting, quick design effects, organizing gardens for minimum maintenance with a spectrum of plants ranging from small clippables to large-scale exotics is artfully enhanced with full color photography that is as inspiring as they are informative. If you have a limited space for a garden, begin your horticultural planning by reading Jill Billington's New Classic Gardens!
