About this item
The approach of this new book is the garden styles of nine regions which have always dealt superbly with heat, drought and water shortage: the Italian Garden, the Islamic Garden, the Patio Garden, the Mediterranean Garden, the Gravel Garden, the Desert Garden, the Bush Garden, the Flowering Desert and the Jungle Garden. Each chapter explains the essence of the style, and its historical roots, including a practical tutorial, a plant focus profiling characteristic plant forms, a colour planting plan and a step-by-step project.
The final chapter is a useful directory of the key plants from each region. This is a critical read for any gardener, offering a practical and inspirational insight into the classic gardens defined by sunshine, humidity and lack of water that will inform the gardens of tomorrow.
