4.0 out of 5 stars Many specific plans; other info less good., 15 Jan. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ultimate Garden Designer (Paperback)
I'd give this 3 and a half stars.
There are many very specific plans (eg Japanese, for the disabled, wildlife). These also give plant lists, which some other books don't, and the plans are useful and attractive. I don't like the fact that it's arranged according to purpose rather than plot size & shape, but loads of different plots are covered within each section. My preference is influenced by having a long garden whish is my biggest concern.
I find the 2nd section, on specific features such as containers, too basic - you may well have better information elswhere.
I prefer Robin Williams' book, The Garden Planner, but it doesn't give anywhere near as many suggestions of plants, so if you're really into this subject it would be worth getting both. (The reason I prefer the other one is that it has better information on how to survey your garden at the start; nice photographs; and a layout that suits my needs.) But I'm glad I got both!
