Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stone Furnishes the framework, the structure, and the sense of permanence that transforms gardens. Whether in the form of retaining walls or benches, terraces or walkways, as bold standing stones or as boulders at the edge of a small stream or pond, stone lends a garden focus, providing the perfect foil to plants.<P>In this lavishly illustrated book, readers are inspired to think creatively and practically about the many roles stone can play in their gardens. More than one hundred color photographs show ways in which stone graces great gardens from around the world. One hundred detailed drawings give readers the know-how to complete a wide range of projects with confidence and finesse. A full-color visual index of fifty-three widely available varieties of stone lets readers select the right color and texture for their purpose and overall plan, and a comprehensive list of resources nationwide tells how to find skilled stone-masons and where to buy stone.

Book News Annotation:

A garden designer describes the creative and practical aspects of garden rock work, from choosing stone that is sympathetic to a property and creating inspired scenes with it to moving heavy stone without hurting oneself. Superb color photographs and detailed pen- and-ink drawings illustrate modest, fanciful, and grand uses for various materials. Also covers practicalities such as choosing a stone mason and calculating amounts of stone. Especially useful is a visual index of 53 widely-available varieties of stone.
