Publisher Comments:

For years Garden Designmagazine has been bringing its unique vision of the garden to a smart, savvy readership through its lush, arrestingly beautiful photography and thought-provoking, informative articles. Now Garden Designcaptures this wisdom and style in a book that delights the senses and enriches the mind. This book of visions for the new gardener. The man or woman who — like most of us — longs to create a special place within the world of nature.

Step-by-step, from essential design elements to offbeat flourishes, from the all-important conception of an overarching design plan (the hallmark of a successful garden, be it minimal and Japanese in style or an exuberant English countryside profusion of color and shape) to the basics of planting and cultivating, from the habits and personalities of both rare and common plants to suggestions on the best ways to make the most of limited growing space (crucial to land-deprived city dwellers). Cheryl Merser and the editors of Garden Designmagazine explain the new garden: What is it, exactly? And what makes it grow?

From first seed to first frost — season after season — The Garden Design Booktakes us through the sometimes complex, sometimes blessedly simple, but always rewarding experience that is gardening.

Synopsis:

With stunning photographs and engaging, informative text, "The Garden Book" gives readers the tools they need to design the garden they long for. Showing readers how to make a livable garden, this authoritative book is a fresh, new voice in the world of garden books. 250 color photos.
