It is lavishly illustrated with understandable drawings and relevant photographs to support the clear text. It is much more comprehensive than a mere introduction to garden design, and yet it is not too daunting for a keen beginner, most of whom will be able to use it as a first real design tool to produce a finished garden. Experienced designers, who will probably already have access to much greater detail in more advanced books, should still find it a useful overview and source of new ideas and an easy way to educate clients.
It is divided into four main sections.
. The techniques of Garden Design, and how to apply them; ranging from first principles of design, through selection of plants and materials, through planning, to a worked case study as a practical example.
. How to choose the Style that will be best suited to your ideas and environment.
. Making a Garden covers the methods of practical construction for the infrastructure and planting techniques for best practice and best results.
. A general guide on how to choose relevant Plants and Materials.
It is not an Encyclopaedia in the conventional sense understood by most people. I think this word is completely out of place and dropping it from the title and Foreword would give a much more accurate impression of what this book really is - an excellent educational Guide. Even the listings of plants and materials are non-alphabetic, except within the subcategories. The only alphabetical listing of topics is in the Index at the end.
