John Brookes, one of the world's most influential garden designers, is leading a quiet revolution, and he is encouraging you to join in. In Natural Landscapes, high maintenance borders and manicured lawns give way to a host of more natural plantings and decorative treatments. Inspired by a series of fascinating garden case histories, John Brookes explores ways to combine native vegetation and materials with exotic plans and show how to produce spectacular effects in keeping with your locale. Brookes also provides indispensable practical advice on how to work in harmony with nature at every stage of your garden's development, from the basic design and selection of materials for hard features, to choosing and positioning plan communities, and introducing garden art. Just as John Brookes set the standard for garden design books in the early 1980s with The Garden Book, his Natural Landscapes is the trend-setting title for landscape enthusiasts old and new.
