4.0 out of 5 stars Dream Gardens 4 Dec 2011
I have this book on my desk. It has been read and I dip into it often, browsing the lovely photographs. I bought it years ago and it was a best buy. Some of the photographs have even inspired paintings on a winters afternoon. A delight.

3.0 out of 5 stars Un po' truffaldino 18 May 2010
By Lidia Zitara - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Un libro un po' truffaldino: ci si sarebbe immaginati giardini al mare in quelle zone tipo i porteros, dove le erbe crescono a ridosso della spiaggia, oppure giardini in zone di riviera, dove la stratificazione culturale e territoriale ha portato a risultati finissimi. Invece i giardini illustrati sono un po' pacchianelli e da arricchiti. Le foto sono tragiche. Scarsissima qualità, si vedono benissimo i fotoritocchi e in moltissime anche i pixel. In complesso io lo lascerei perdere a meno che non siate monomaniaci.
