I find Robin Williams' The Garden Planner far more useful, but then I'm just planning our own garden.
Nevertheless, It takes a lot to be able to stand outdoors, in a to-be garden space, armed with a book, and start making marks! It takes inspiration, dedication and extensive skill, talent, knowledge and experience. What this volume does not offer is inspiration - that, of course, was not the brief. One must combine this reading with some 'Caffeine'-type publications to be able to make the leap...
The majority is in monochrome, and although retro, it actually helps focusing on the tasks. This book, no doubt, is a useful tool at the Chelsea Physic Garden School of Garden Design, where the authors teach.
