Overview

Creating a beautiful garden has never been easier! Tim Newbury--a three-time gold medal winner at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show--has come up with more than 100 superb designs to suit every taste, plot, and pocket. There are old-fashioned charming cottage gardens, Japanese-style gardens, and water and woodland gardens. Some are formal, others are coastal, and one is even on a rooftop. Construct gardens for the kitchen, entertaining, the flower enthusiast, and the entire family. A vast selection of features from pools to patios, a comprehensive plant directory, and more than 600 photographs, watercolors, plans, and drawings make this the next best thing to hiring a garden designer to do the work.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Leagues above the common garden design primer. Superb photographs with the best depth of focus seen in any gardening book. Recommended."—Library Journal

" Focuses on garden highlights, such as pools, pergolas, gazebos, and brick pavings, with concise planting plans."—Booklist

Library Journal
Pick a style of garden (cottage, kitchen, family, etc.), see a plan complete with a planting list, add a feature such as a pool or pergola, and create your own unique garden. It may sound simplistic, but this book is leagues above the common garden design primer. The author has won three gold medals for design at London's renowned Chelsea Flower Show, and his good taste shows throughout. The design plans are all presented with variations based on size and shape. They also provide alternatives based on cost, style, or ease of construction and are key numbered to a planting list, which describes a selection of plants that give good value for the money. Besides the detailed sketches, there are superb photographs with the best depth of focus this reviewer has seen in any gardening book. Recommended for all gardening collections.-Daniel Starr, Museum of Modern Art, New York
