Book News Annotation:
British garden designer John Brookes focuses on eleven basic ideas in garden design—setting, shape, direction, levels, enclosure, entrance, surface, structure, planting, water, and style—explaining the vital elements of each and presenting exceptionally good photos from around the world to clarify the concepts. (Unfortunately, their locations are not consistently identified.) His approach is practical and clear yet sophisticated, and environmental sensitivity is emphasized throughout.
