Guide to Garden Design
By Eric Vidal
The Book Guild Ltd.
192 pages, illustrated
Eric Vidal believes that a garden is a living extension of a house, the 'outdoor room' which can be enjoyed all year round. A Guide to Garden Design begins by tackling basic questions that every house-buying gardener should be asking, then moves on to describe in detail the ground work that needs to be undertaken to give any garden design a solid foundation.
The book includes 80 fully detailed garden plans covering every design challenge from a large country house to a tiny mews cottage. The author is highly experienced, having spent more than fifty years of his life in horticulture, serving as a landscaper of public open spaces for the Greater London Council.
Includes 36 color plates.
