5.0 out of 5 stars A very Informative read., 14 Sept. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Introduction to Landscape Design and Construction (Hardcover)
I've been working at the sharp end of the Landscape Industry for 10 or so years now and have to say I am most impressed by this wonderful book. The way the prose flows and darts like a young gazelle through the serengetti shows this to be a work of some literary genius. I recall whilst studying at Otley college of Agriculture the books one could buy or borrow that made the study of this noble art a drudge, many had out of date sentiments focussing on arkane Jellicoesque nonsense relating to the unrelenting use of bark chippings regardless of the situation - not this book! Some would patronise the reader by telling them how to sharpen pencils or use a rubber - no such padding out here! The well thought out and up-to-date theories on design make this a truly ground breaking book. I look forward to visiting some of the Author's schemes to see just how he has put some of this excellent theory into practice. A sharp, well illustrated and often very witty insight into front garden design, well done James Blake!
