Home gardeners with a keen interest in design, as well as professional landscape designers, will find invaluable advice in this new approach. The book focuses on the general principles behind creating successful and beautiful plant combinations in both time and space — working with perennials in the context of trees, shrubs, and the surrounding landscape. The authors suggest looking across, into, and through the landscape. They ask the reader to consider the rhythms and connections in their designs, through such elements as echoes, linkages, and repetitions. More than just theory, Planting Design includes practical discussion of topics such as soil preparation, plant selection, and garden maintenance. Exceptional photographs show growth of a designed landscape over time, opening the gardener to new ways of seeing and thinking about their landscapes.

Home gardeners with a keen interest in design, as well as professional landscape designers, will find invaluable advice in this new approach. The book focuses on the general principles behind creating successful and beautiful plant combinations in both time and space - working with perennials in the context of trees, shrubs, and the surrounding landscape. The authors suggest looking across, into, and through the landscape. They ask the reader to consider the rhythms and connections in their designs, through such elements as echoes, linkages, and repetitions. Here the art of planting takes its cues from the plants themselves and draws inspiration from nature and ecology. More than just theory, Planting Design includes practical discussion of such topics as soil preparation, plant selection, and garden maintenance, as well as useful lists of cutting-edge yet proven plants, including perennials, annuals, biennials, trees, and shrubs, for diverse garden situations. Exceptional color photography highlights the growth of gardens and designed landscapes over time, drawing the gardener and designer into new ways of seeing and thinking about landscape.
