Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Design consultant and art director Stafford Cliff has spent a lifetime designing catalogs and magazines relating to the home. Working with Sir Terence Conran he produced the very first Habitat catalogs and, in 1974, designed The House Book, one of the first truly design-led guides to interior furnishing, which became the biggest selling home book of all time. Since then he has produced dozens of books on aspects of design and the home— most recently The Way We Live, a remarkable 480-page survey of homes around the world, and two titles for Artisan: Home, a groundbreaking investigation into how we feel about our homes, and 1000 Garden Ideas, a visual sourcebook featuring garden and patio elements from around the world.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Every country has its tradition of small garden structures—as a place to take tea or take in the view, play music, or write a great novel. A pavilion can provide shade in the summer or shelter from a storm, and the perfect focus for a garden party. It's a chance to set your architectural imagination free. A garden structure can be as simple as a poolside cabana, a rustic miniature English cottage, a sturdy Dutch gazebo, or a tranquil Japanese tea house. Such historic forms are inspiration for those who want a sylvan refuge in which to work, write, or entertain friends. Indeed, the garden structure is a building that brings you closer to nature. More practical are those garden structures that, while sometimes framing a view, serve primarily to support vines, roses, and other climbing plants. These are the arches, the pergolas, and the arbors, whose appeal lies not only in their appearance from a distance but in the experience of walking or sitting beneath them. Although a long pergola is suitable only for larger spaces, or to transform an awkward area along one side of a town house garden, an arch is ideal for creating a focal point, embracing a seat, or showcasing a spectacular flowering climber.

I checked this book out from the library, and was thoroughly impressed!
Thankful Mommy
Packed with photographs and very little, text it's an encyclopaedic reference to a past of ideas, aspirations and and tastes.

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.

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.

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".

This book is pretty wonderful. It is loaded with pictures and you can definately get some ideas. This is not a how to book, there is very little to read at all. Great for a coffee table!
