Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Simple, easy-to-read plans for low maintenance gardening in a natural environment. John Brookes, one of the world's most influential landscape designers, is leading a quiet revolution and he is encouraging you to join in. In Natural Landscapes, high-maintenance borders and manicured lawns give way to a host of more natural planting and decorative treatments. Inspired by a series of fascinating case histories, John Brookes explores ways to combine native vegetation and materials with related plants, and shows how to produce spectacular effects in keeping with your locale. Indispensable practical advice shows you how to work in harmony with nature at every stage of your garden's development — from the basic design and selection of materials for hard features to choosing and positioning plant communities, and introducing garden art. Just as John Brookes set the standard for garden design books in the 1980s with The Garden Book, Natural Landscapes is the trend-setting title for passionate gardeners of the 21st century.

Synopsis:

Learn to combine native vegetation with exotic natural features to produce spectacular landscaping effects.

About the Author

John Brookes has often been described as the world's most influential landscape designer, both because the gardens he has created for his clients and his teaching of the art spans five continents, and because his books have been bestsellers since his groundbreaking classic Room Outside was first published in 1969. Brookes' own training among the giants of 20th-century landscape design and his international career have given him a unique perspective on our changing attitude to the garden, and he has consistently shown us the best of the new landscaping trends. Natural Landscapes is a must-have resource for gardeners who want to improve their environment, and also for anyone who cares about good landscape design.
