Overall, the design emphasis is more contemporary than traditional although there are examples or more traditional gardens and materials. The planting ideas are excellent and I like the fact that there are sections covering maintenance & garden housekeeping. There are chapters devoted to boundaries, water, planting & materials as well as more general introduction to the principles of garden design. Each chapter has a case study and there are tips on 'how to' achieve certain effects e.g. a Mediterranean garden, cottage garden.
This is a very useful addition to the bookshelves for both students and those designing their own gardens who I think will benefit from the ideas that a practising garden designer can offer that might not occur to an amateur.
It covers a wide range of design topics including themes, visual tricks, water, materials and garden buildings. The text is presented in well-organised sections and bullet points, covering important considerations and case studies. The '15 ways to...' at the start of each section is a nice feature. I found this book very inspiring, and it also looks good on the coffee table!
I bought the hardback edition which, of course, always has an aesthetic enhancement.
