100 Contemporary DesignsBook - 2014
Explore 100 gardens from around the world with this illustrated guide to the design elements of each--from historical style to planting and landscape design. This comprehensive reference offers gardens from many periods of history--Islamic, Renaissance, English Landscape, Arts & Crafts, and more--and geographically diverse environments--from a nighttime sculpture garden on the Oregon coast, to a sustainable water garden in the mountains of Vermont, and the Mughal garden at the Indian president's palace in New Delhi. They are inspirational works made by both talented amateurs and major international garden designers--including Britain's Christopher Bradley-Hole, Italy's Luciano Giubbilei, and Americans Isabelle Greene, Raymond Jungles, and Martha Schwartz.
