Roy Strong on Garden Design
Strong, Roy
Book Number: 52709
ISBN: 1840911522
Conran Octopus March 10, 2000 8vo softcover 144pp near fine. There are many elements that make a garden different and special. However, all too often these elements are seen as playing a secondary role, but in fact they dictate the flavour of the whole garden. In this book, Roy Strong gives these features the attention they deserve by covering all aspects of garden design - which plants to use, architectural features and garden ornaments. Moreover, he never loses sight of the small garden as an entity and always considers how the features relate to each other, to the overall structure of the garden and to the planting schemes.nnAbout the AuthornSir Roy Strong is a leading garden writer, historian and designer. He has a weekly column on gardens in the Sunday Telegraph and is an avid practicing gardener, having transformed four acres of ploughed fields around his home into a widely acclaimed garden. He was formerly director of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

[Alexandria, Va.] Time-Life, Incorporated 1996 4to hardcover 288pp index, colour illus. very good / very good d/w. From BooklistnThe aim of this guide is not so much to provide practical advice as to introduce the principles of gardening in harmony with nature. Profusely illustrated with photographs, charts, drawings, and watercolors, the book outlines important considerations when planning a new garden. The goal is to design a habitat that will be appealing to birds, butterflies, and a wide range of fauna. Six separate regions of the country are identified in "The Backyard Habitat" section, which makes up the greater part of the text. Nearly 150 native plants are recommended, with more than 40 specific species noted for each region. The handsome format and ecology-conscious commentary make this a fine selection for gardening collections. Alice Joyce

All this knowledge is put to use on some of the most practical, beautiful, and luxurious projects ever-all presented with vivid illustrations and detailed instructions. Any home can get an uplift from the tiled patio and retaining wall, pergola, courtyard with stone planters, waterfall, or outdoor kitchen. And who wouldn't love having their own putting green and hot tub right in their own backyard? Throughout the book, dozens of photos capture the amazing difference between "before" and "after"-a difference that anyone can make when they do it themselves.
