Garden fashions continually evolve but an understanding of fundamental principles underlies all thoughtful design.
So all novice garden designers and landscape contractors must make themselves familiar with the elements that constitute garden space.
This book is packed with line drawings, informal sketches and sections of actual garden plans that have evolved from the Authors' wide experience.
Colour photographs - many of which are linked to plans within the text - all help to enhance the principles, problems and solutions that designers will have to face.
With such information in front of them, student readers will be encouraged to look, think and analyse before taking up pencil, computer mouse or spade.
Already on college reading lists, this book is a must for all beginners starting out on careers as garden designers and builders.
