About this book

In this fully revised edition of a classic design and style sourcebook, Robin Williams shows you how to make beautiful gardens in which every element fits harmoniously into a whole. With a wealth of examples and plans, including three-dimensional sketches, he sets out the general principles of garden design and guides you through the process of assessing the plot, finding a style and choosing every garden element, from paths to planting.

The book shows a full range of types, materials and styles for every garden detail and advises on suitability for different garden situations, how to design and construct them and how best to place them. Straightforward explanation, professional experience and outstanding illustrations combine to make this a handbook on which anyone making a garden can completely depend.
