A complete sourcebook of inspiration and reference.
For over 40 years author and innovative designer Stafford Cliff has visited hundreds of gardens in the course of his travels around the world. With his unique designer's eye and his gardener's imagination, he has photographed the cleverest solutions, the most original choices—the best of everything a gardener could dream of.
This fascinating book brings together those images in kaleidoscopic juxtaposition, creating, for the first time, a complete sourcebook of inspiration and reference on all the best ideas for outdoor spaces—the plants, the paths, the ponds, and the pots are all shown. And if you've ever thought of a new front fence, an ornamental gate, a water feature in a container, a sundial, or a seat, they're here, too. A veritable visual scrapbook to delight the eye, with the quirky alongside the classic, the modern set against the rustic. And, as practical as it is inspiring, the book also includes a directory of suppliers so that readers can turn inspiration into reality.
