This is a must-have for anyone looking for garden design ideas. Hundreds of full-color images are cleverly arranged to offer thousands of possible design solutions and inspirations for any type of garden. The book includes gardens from all over the world and features projects by the best contemporary designers at work today, including Topher Delaney, James van Sweden, Piet Oudolf, Rick Darke, Sean Hogan, and many others. Alongside never-before-seen private gardens, the book also includes celebrated public spaces such as Manhattan's High Line--a disused elevated freight track redesigned into innovative, naturalistic plantings--whose ideas can be adapted for the home garden.  

The book is divided into four sections: "Connect" looks at design features that act either as connecting or dividing elements; "Divide" considers elements that can be used to create rooms within gardens; "Space" explores different spatial types; and "Styles" covers every type of garden style throughout history, from cottage gardens to today's minimalist designs. Rounded out with a series of useful directories on designers, sources, and public gardens, this is the book for garden design ideas.
