"Portable Drama," "Staging Incidents," "Zonal Denial" - all these and more concepts presented by iconoclastic and trend-setting garden visionary Thomas Hobbs in this challenging, cutting-edge book on innovative garden design. Using examples from exceptional gardens throughout North America and Europe, Hobbs shows how freeing up the mind from the bonds of conventional garden design concepts can result in gardens of singular allure. Hobbs attests that we can learn from Nature how best to blend color, texture, and species of plants to create beauty in the garden. Luxuriantly illustrated with over 190 striking four-color photographs, this thought-provoking book is a fount of ideas you can use to invigorate your garden's visual appeal.
Thomas Hobbes' books have the sort of ideas that you might never think of and really beautiful photos. You will be introduced to gardens that are incredibly inspiring and lasting gardening concepts that will help you with your garden design. If you figure out how much gardening magazines with this kind of information and photography would cost, it is a bargain at the $35.00 cover price. The book has "over 190" photos. It works primarily by filling the page with photos and giving you information in small and effective amounts next to each photo. If you don't return to these kinds of books over and over it is definitely worth a trip to the library.
