Shows how topiary can complement a range of different garden styles and create interesting design effects, such as defining an enteranceway, marking a boundary, creating depth, or mirroring a garden feature.
This is a wonderfully inspiring book for anyone interested in topiary at any level. Steven Wooster's images and Jenny Hendy's words will have you reaching for the topiary shears. It's a handsome book with good informative and practical text. I've always liked topiary, but this has made me long for a topiary garden all of my own, with someone else doing the clipping!
I'm a great fan of topiary and was pleased to see it coming back into fashion at Chelsea. I've enjoyed my first "read through" and am going to enjoy it all over again when I've time to study it properly.
