Overview

One of the world's most successful garden designers--and winner of the prestigious Best Garden Award at the Chelsea Flower Show 2000--describes in detail the influences and inspirations that produce gardens in perfect harmony with house and landscape. For a garden to exude atmosphere, it must look beyond its own boundaries and embrace elements from the surrounding environment. Bring native trees, flowers, grasses, and architectural materials into your little plot of Eden. Or, contrast a rooftop oasis with the city streets below, while still recognizing the energy coming from that different dimension. Equally important, gardens must continue and extend the home's patterns, shapes, colors, even period features. Innovative suggestions for working with various landscapes and water; for taking advantage of what's already there; for establishing links between house and garden; and much more will open your eyes to the endless possibilities for a harmonious design!
