Publisher Comments:

A practical, hands-on method for the design of planting, ensuring a final garden that suits the reader's needs and style
Rather than relying on plant knowledge, this innovative book introduces a new visual approach to planting design. It sets out the principles of planting design, introducing the nine plant shapes and a selection of appropriate plants, and uses drawing exercises to explain the plant shape method. It also provides advice on color in planting schemes, offers examples of three-dimensional planting design schemes, and explains how all gardeners—from the novice to the experienced—can achieve a beautiful and rewarding garden.
