Editorial Reviews

Review

'A guided tour through the thousands of gardens visited...Stafford has recorded everything, from clever planting solutions to beautiful display ideas, and there is also a useful directory of gardens open to the public' - Alan Titchmarsh, Sunday Express 'The title says it all - this colourful source of horticultural inspiration contains 1000 photographs of gates, fences, hedges and paths, plants, pots, fountains and furniture. Guaranteed to get your green fingers turning the pages' - Sainsbury's Magazine 'A great big picture book full of inspiration drawn from gardens all over the world' - Elle Decoration --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

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.
  • An unrivaled source of ideas for every possible element of the garden
  • The quirky, the classic, the modern, the traditional, all brought together in this informational and inspirational collection
  • A unique archive of photographs, taken all over the world.

Great for a coffee table!

It is a great book for exactly what the title says- it is good for generating creative thought and ideas.
Sue
I had borrowed it from the library but just had to get my own copy, so, yes, I do recommend it.

If you're a creative artistic person who knows what they like but can't quite express it this is the book you've been waiting for. Over 1000 pictorial examples of garden ideas laid out in chapter form for you to take to the garden center and triumphantly exclaim, "I want to do this!" Great for planning your landscape and considering all the design possibilities you may never knew existed. Don't hesistate here, you won't be disappointed.

Format: Hardcover
The photos are beautiful. But it is just a series of photos, almost like inventory from a catalog. Containers without plant material, seating without any a setting, ancient stone statues that cannot be purchased, it has no application to a new garden. I would stick to a standard Sunset book, you would get a much bigger picture, application and complete ideas.

I love the quantity of photo's in the book. It's not a 'how-to-do' book. It is a book that provides you with a variety of options for a specific part of a garden. Enough to get our creative juices flowing.

Format: Hardcover
This book contains maybe 1000 pictures... all relatively small. This in no way gave me any ideas whatsoever. If you are looking for ideas for a backyard, patio, garden shed, flowers, pergolas. etc.. I suggest Lee Ann White's "Backyard Ideas".
