Booklist Review

Guinness illustrates a wonderful array of garden design ideas, which are accompanied by the stimulating commentary of this celebrated designer. Any gardener wishing to introduce an element of drama to a subdued garden space will be motivated by the beguiling panoply of photographs, suggesting everything from details created with garden ornaments to overall themes dependent on extensive brickwork. Guinness opens up exciting possibilities, including intricate effects created with colorful paints, stonework elements, living hedges for boundary walls, and topiary sculptures. Do-it-yourself types will find step-by-step instructions for many techniques shown. Anyone who is considering hiring a landscape architect will discover plenty of options to discuss: for instance, decorative paving surfaces, whimsical garden buildings, and focal points executed with plants, water features, and uncommon lighting. --Alice Joyce
