This well-illustrated reference offers gardeners some 150 design categories and suggestions for planting and design variations, from 'alleys and avenues' to 'woodland gardens'. Introductory material includes inspiration from classic gardens plus practical issues to consider: e.g., formal vs. informal design, softscape vs. hardscape components, and seasonal considerations. Entries run from one to four pages including color photos. Less expected entries include those on labels and signs, orchid gardens, and roof gardens. Fell is a UK-born, Pennsylvania-based writer/photographer said to have won more awards from the Garden Writers Association of America than anyone else.
