Explore 100 gardens from around the world with this illustrated guide to the design elements of each--from historical style to planting and landscape design.
 
This comprehensive reference offers gardens from many periods of history--Islamic, Renaissance, English Landscape, Arts & Crafts, and more--and geographically diverse environments--from a nighttime sculpture garden on the Oregon coast, to a sustainable water garden in the mountains of Vermont, and the Mughal garden at the Indian president's palace in New Delhi. They are inspirational works made by both talented amateurs and major international garden designers--including Britain's Christopher Bradley Hole, Italy's Luciano Giubbilei and Paolo Pejrone, and Americans Isabelle Green, Raymond Jungles, and Martha Schwartz.
 
In this affordable volume boasting 500 illustrations, readers are led through the details of each garden and provided with the tools needed to understand and replicate each exemplary design--whether the site is rural or urban, a backyard or a beach, in any climate, and on any budget. Each beautiful project photo is followed by a list of key concepts, numbered close-ups that highlight aspects of the design, and expert write-ups to explain how each element serves the garden as a whole.
 
Whether looking for a whole landscaping scheme, or simply an individual idea for a water feature or a wall, readers will find a wealth of ideas to choose from. Both experienced and armchair gardeners will find that Gardens in Detail will enhance their appreciation of how good design decisions are made at every scale.
