Publisher Comments:

The definitive sourcebook of garden ideas from the "godfather" of contemporary garden designers. Combining 40 years of experience from all over the world, John Brookes' Garden Master Class is the most definitive book of garden design you'll ever own.

Each chapter is devoted to a single design concept while the book as a whole features an incredible range of ideas. Garden Design Masterclass will give anyone the knowledge and confidence to go out into the garden and be creative.

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.
