Author(s): HOBHOUSE PENELOPE
All Over the World, garden owners clamour for consultations with Penelope Hobhouse. Her reputation and vast experience as a designer of successful gardens bring entreaties to transform sites as far apart as California and Maine, the Scottish Isles and Italy. Here, in more than twenty garden designs, Hobhouse places her professional knowledge -- as a designer, plantswoman, and colorist beyond compare -- in the hands of all gardeners, so that they too can create truly satisfying gardens.
Covering both urban and rural settings, Penelope Hobhouse's Garden Designs includes:
-- More than thirty professional scale drawings and planting plans for a wide range of sites, climates, and purposes
-- Specially commissioned full-colour photographs of the gardens
-- Colour-theme planting plans for sunny and shady flower beds
-- Down-to-earth, practical advice on planning for low maintenance
This book will enable all gardeners to follow in the footsteps of gardening's brightest star.
Good general condition with a little wear and fading on dustjacket. A popular and not easy book to find.
