    Unusual beautiful gardens & many design tips

    This book is full of pictures of unusual and beautiful gardens, all very different from one another. I especially enjoyed seeing the variety of what is possible. The text focuses mainly on design with discussion on style and analysis of that works and why. Although I think Keith Davitt's first book 'Small Spaces Beautiful Gardens' was a superior book with more information on how each garden was created and before & after pictures, I still highly recommend this book for its many examples and design tips.
