Both inspirational and practical, this book provides a wealth of design ideas and garden plans. The first part of the book explores Arabella Lennox-Boyd's philosophy and establishes the principles of her approach to design: the importance of relating the garden not only to the landscape but also to the spirit of the house and the individuality of the owner; how to establish the bare bones of a design - enclosing garden rooms, and opening up garden space; how to use vertical structures to best effect; and how to clothe bare bones with plants appropriate to the type of garden. Design ideas for everything from paving and pergolas to perennial plantings burst from every page, captured in Andrew Lawson's images and Lennox-Boyd's plans. The second part of the book looks in detail at more than 20 very different gardens, ranging from the broad canvas of a sweeping romantic garden to the understated detail of a minimalist roof top.
