This book both outlines the principles adapted in devising and planning landscape gardens, and then discusses and illustrates a series of specific examples, mainly in the UK but also in Russia and the Middle East. Expensive, elegant and fairly formal, these are luxury gardens for the wealthy client, but the lessons and the principles are universally applicable.
