3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 18, 2006
Format: Hardcover
George Carter is a well-established British landscape architect and space planner and he also just happens to have a very artistic eye and an ability to communicate to the reader. In this very beautifully designed and presented book, Carter offers strong ideas for every scale of garden. Not only does he demonstrate his ability to plan the grand gardens of mansions, but he also gives equal time and value to creating a small garden out of minimal space. How? Therein lies the magic of this fine book.

Carter encourages the reader to fully evaluate the land to be utilized as yard and garden, how to figure the axis of the property that will best enhance the home's placement on the land, how to take advantage of the natural benefits of that area's horticulture and solid elements, and then presents gardens he has created according to the restrictions (or lack of same) he finds. The book is filled with diagrams but it goes a step further than the usual 'do it yourself' books because of Carter's gift for painting: he not only shows the blueprint but also shows his painted concept of how the blueprint will look in its finished stage. The multiple paintings are a treat unto themselves!

Then Carter incorporates the very fine photography of Marianne Majerus who has combed the countryside finding gardens and the elements of gardens to give the reader actual images of current garden examples.

Format: Paperback
I found this book a very helpful introduction to garden design and essentials as well as a good guide for somebody who cannot decide how to manage his/her garden space. The book is divided into sections with really useful information and simple rules that can be applied by anyone.
