Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Creating a garden is an endless and enormous task, appearing so formidable that many people, out of fear, choose not to bother. But as author Thomas Hobbs illustrates in this astounding book, once you take the plunge into garden creation it becomes such a thrill of accomplishment, providing so much personal pleasure, that you never want to turn back.

Shocking Beauty is an in-depth gardening book with a twist-it enables you to discover what it takes to stop people in their tracks and realize how stunning nature can be. In order to do this, Hobbs shows how freeing up the mind from the bonds of conventional garden design concepts can result in gardens of singular allure. Luxuriantly illustrated with over 200 striking full-color photographs, this thought-provoking book will inspire people who've never gardened before and invigorate the passions of those who already know the joy of gardening.

Synopsis:

"Gardening without fear means taking risks that saner heads would never contemplate." - Thomas Hobbs

Synopsis:

A striking collection of cutting-edge and innovative garden design, using examples from exceptional gardens throughout North America and Europe.
