"Portable Drama," "Staging Incidents," "Zonal Denial"-all these and more are concepts presented by iconoclastic and trendsetting master gardener Thomas Hobbs in this challenging, cutting-edge book on innovative garden design. Using examples from exceptional gardens throughout North America and Europe, Hobbs shows how freeing up the mind from the bonds of conventional garden design concepts can result in gardens of singular allure. Hobbs attests that we can learn from nature how best to blend colour, texture, and species of plants to create beauty in the garden. Luxuriantly illustrated with arresting four-colour photographs, this thought-provoking book is a fount of ideas you can use to invigorate your garden's visual appeal.
