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.
Sir 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.
