Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Well-Designed Mixed Garden is a design book with a difference. Written for gardeners who are passionate about plants of all kinds, it reflects decades of professional experience and artistic innovation.

Tracy DiSabato-Aust provides not only inspiration but also scrupulously organized information on design and connoisseur plants. A gallery of detailed design plans is included, as is an encyclopedia of plant combinations with notes on design considerations and tips on how to keep the combinations looking their best. The result is a nearly foolproof guide to every aspect of designing superior gardens with superior plants.

With more than 250 color photos and illustrations, this paperback edition of a design classic is as much a feast for the eyes as it will be a trusted reference for the library shelf.

Synopsis:

Written for gardeners who are passionate about plants of all kinds, this handbook provides not only inspiration but information on design and connoisseur plants--all from original research dating back to the author's degree in horticulture. Photos.

Synopsis:

Design superior gardens with the guidance of a star garden designer who covers site evaluation, color theory, and planning for maintenance. Includes an "Encyclopedia of Plant Combinations."
