Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I picked this up as inspiration for a garden design course I am taking and I am very pleased. It is full of excellent photographs and with lots of ideas for materials to use or new ways to use commonplace materials to give an edge to a garden. The author founded a garden design school and is a practising designer at the same time so the book is borne of experience.

Overall, the design emphasis is more contemporary than traditional although there are examples or more traditional gardens and materials. The planting ideas are excellent and I like the fact that there are sections covering maintenance & garden housekeeping. There are chapters devoted to boundaries, water, planting & materials as well as more general introduction to the principles of garden design. Each chapter has a case study and there are tips on 'how to' achieve certain effects e.g. a Mediterranean garden, cottage garden.

This is a very useful addition to the bookshelves for both students and those designing their own gardens who I think will benefit from the ideas that a practising garden designer can offer that might not occur to an amateur.

This book is packed with beautiful, inspiring photos. This is balanced well by the amount of useful information about garden design and maintenance. The content is helpful whether you are starting from scratch, or want some ideas to improve your current garden design.

It covers a wide range of design topics including themes, visual tricks, water, materials and garden buildings. The text is presented in well-organised sections and bullet points, covering important considerations and case studies. The '15 ways to...' at the start of each section is a nice feature. I found this book very inspiring, and it also looks good on the coffee table!

Great practical ideas for our small garden with illustrations of the flowers for different types of display. The height and spread of each suggested plant is very useful.
