4.0 out of 5 stars A How To Do It Guide for Landscape Architects, 20 April 2013
This review is from: Planting: A New Perspective (Hardcover)
Everything the previous writers said is true and yet I found it hard to take anything from this book and use it in an everyday garden situation.

It is intense reading and has to be read again and again to appreciate just how exquisitely every statement has been perfectly weighed and judged by Noel Kingsbury. It is the most careful, thought through and detailed analysis of modern developments in ornamental planting that exists today. And worthy reading for that alone.

But these techniques are more relevant to the planning of large public spaces than the surburban semi. In the UK's cash strapped local environement, where our public parks and spaces are surely in need of a face-lift, this book points the way to a brighter future. And we should all be grateful to Noel, Piet and other practitioners in this field who are pushing the boundaries.

Am I glad I bought and read this book - Yes I am. Mightily! Can I apply it to my humble garden patch - No.
